James, I live on the north side of the border in Winnipeg and really can’t see the fuss either. There really shouldn’t be any difference in water quality on either side of the border but like you said I’m not a biologist either. As long as the water is controlled in the spring during flooding season. They mentioned that the water would rise about 4” higher during normal season and that’s no big deal. Let me know what you find out. I’m curious to see what is said especially when the politicians doesn’t get involved.

They showed on the news the amount of water that has risen over the years and that’s unbelievable. Hopefully they can resolve the problem one way or another. Have a great weekend guys, we already had ours.

I will let you know what the story is after I talk to the guide. The same water quality should be present as all the rivers that run in would be the same. I quess Flooding might be a little more likely although there is seldom any floodind on the shyenne until it joins the other rivers in Fargo. Do you fish on the Red up there? I have wanted to fish the big cats up there sometime. We catch a ton of good channel cats north of Fargo but they get bigger as you go north. The locked in ones up your way really get big. I think they winter in lake Winnipeg don't they?

I’ve never fished for cats my self but I’ve seen and heard of very large channel cats being caught in and around Selkirk and Lockport. These are two towns north of Winnipeg about 45 minutes to and hour away at the most that are along the side of the Red River. I would have to ask my brother on how big they get. He does allot more fishing then me. All I know is that they catch lots of master anglers and we have lots of Americans that come up fishing for these big channel cats.
I’m not sure where they winter because I do ice fishing on the Red north of Selkirk and have never caught a channel cat. We are always looking at getting green backs ( walleye) that come down from lake Winnipeg.
Just south of Winnipeg we have a large wire screen fence that runs through the Red to make sure that the big ones don’t go south for the winter.LOL

All we have in the Red for cats are the Channel cats. Lots of them from 3 to 16 lbs. Lots and lots of 5-7 pounders.

Hey, I did a first over the weekend. I caught a big bullfrog on a fly rod. Fishing for bass with my 9 wt and popping bug and put it right in front of him. Sucker ate it. Heck of a time getting him out of the reeds. Didn't see enough around to justify keeping him so I threw him back.

I once caught a snapping turtle fishing for perch. If it wouldn’t have been that the hook broke just by the boat I might have tried turtle soup.

James, the master angler for channel cat is 34” long. I’m not sure what that’s in weight but would think it’s probably 25 lbs plus and maybe more like 30lbs. I did once catch a master angle Northen Pike and had a heck of a time bringing it in.
