Manitoba is home to the Channel Catfish Capital. This unparalleled fishery attracts shore fishing anglers from across the globe. The Red River System in Manitoba’s Interlake Region, between Lockport and the mouth of Lake Winnipeg offers easy access for anglers to catch some of the largest channel catfish in the world right from shore. These channel cats are highly regarded as one of the hardest fighting freshwater fish, and its that fight that keeps anglers coming back for more.
