EAST GRAND FORKS, MN (WDAZ-TV) - A stinky situation at the Red River, as local fishermen are catching catfish and leaving them on stringers to rot.

Greenway staff and authorities are seeking the public's help.

Locals walking by have been smelling the rotting fish, and say it isn’t pleasant.

"I thought it was very disrespectful of people and it just smells gross,” said concerned resident Kayla Horner, “and there's so many people that come and use this Greenway to run and do exercises and stuff, and it just wasn't very appealing to me."

A total of 9 catfish were found left out to rot in East Grand Forks.
