  • Chuck the Channel Catfish

    Selkirk, Manitoba, calls itself the ‘Catfish Capital of the World’ because of the record size catches from the Red River. Chuck the Channel Catfish is a 10m high fibreglass statue constructed in 1986. It’s name is in memory of William Charles “Chuck” Lawrence Norquay, a local angler who played a significant role in promoting catfishing on the river. At age 37, Chuck lost his life in a tragic boating accident while fishing on the Red River in 1993, doing what he loved best, fishing.
