The Missouri River Catfish Clash is the newest event on the Montana Cats Circuit, and the first to take place in North Dakota. The event is stationed out of Lewis and Clark Bridge, four miles west of Williston, ND. It is held annually on the 3rd Saturday of August and replaced the Bighorn Catfish Tournament previously held out of Lovell, Wyoming.
Boundaries stretch east to west from Legion Park fishing access to the "Confluence" of the mighty Missouri and Yellowstone Rivers. Like the Yellowstone Challenge in Huntley, MT., this event is boat ONLY. The tournament filled it's 60-team capacity in 2015 for the first time ever, and will undoubtedly help fortify the tournament circuit for years to come.
Montana Cats board of director, Blake Gauer, is the current tournament director.
