The Red River of the North

The Red River of the North is a 545 mile long river that runs along the Minnesota/North Dakota border from Wahpeton, ND/Breckenridge, MN into Manitoba, Canada and eventually draining into the massive Lake Winnipeg. Along its way it passes through many cities and towns providing water, beautiful scenery, and stellar fishing along the way. Some of the major cities it passes through are Breckenridge, Moorhead, and East Grand Forks, Minnesota as well as Wahpeton, Fargo, Grand Forks, and Drayton, North Dakota.

The Red River is home to over 70 species of fish, most notably the famous channel catfish. Catfishing enthusiasts travel to the Red River from all over the United States for a shot at the monster Red River catfish. It is said that the catfish grow so big because of the short growing season that allows them to live a long time and get big but it also has to do with a ready food supply and stringent protective regulations to help protect the larger catfish from over harvest. The Red River is the only places on the continent that provides you the opportunity to possibly catch a 20+ pound channel with every hookset.

There truly is no other channel catfish experience quite like a trip on The Red River of the North.
