A fisherman tries his luck in the Red River. The view is to the north, where the Main Avenue Bridge can be seen in the distance.
Fishing in the river at this time (1905-1910) was good, but by the 1920s untreated raw sewage from both Fargo and Moorhead had created a dead zone downstream. Fishing all but disappeared. Since the late 1930s the Red River has been cleaned up and fishing has resumed.
