A popular catfishing tournament in Drayton is being postponed because of high water on the Red River there this summer.

A popular catfishing tournament in Drayton is being postponed because of high water on the Red River there this summer.

The Rod and Reel Rally catfishing tournament was to have been held next weekend as part of the community's 16th annual River Fest. Instead it will be held in August. Water on the Red rose considerably at Drayton following heavy rains earlier this summer. Organizers say the issue is one of safety. The Drayton tournament is now scheduled for Saturday August 24th. Two years ago the Cats Incredible Tournament in East Grand Forks was canceled, also because of high water on the Red.
