Someone is leaving catfish on the shores of Grand Forks & EGF to rot. WDAZ article.
I just started fishing GF this year and let me tell ya I have never seen so much garbage in and on the banks of a river. Lots of people around fisherman or not and some people are quite disrespectful around the river. I saw one guy on a boat cassually throw garbage right off the side. There was even a G and F presence one of the 4 times I have fished it. Witnessed about 8 13 year olds throw an entire couch into the river. Methheads shore fishing all night, leaving syringes, couches, tents, garbage. Probably methheads who keep fish and then decide they dont want to clean/eat them so they ditch them. Saw plenty of drunks coming off the river pulling out dropping things along the way also.
Sounds like a lovely place to fish.
Don't practice until you get it right, practice until you can't get it wrong.
Well I wouldnt call it terrible just yet but ya the more people you get through an area the more problems you see. I sat two days near the north launch for those observations.
