Sitting in front of two restaurants in downtown Selkirk is a gigantic catfish. The statue of "Chuck the Channel Cat" is 33 feet high and made of fiberglass. It was installed in 1986 and named in memory of a local sport fisherman Chuck Norquay.
Selkirk's stretch of the Red River is well knowm for its large catfish, and the town considers itself the "Catfish Capital of the World." I enjoy spotting local landmarks like this when traveling.
