Milk River Catfish Classic
The Classic is the “grand daddy” of the Montana Cats Tour. It was started in 2000 by Montana Cats Vice President Brenner Flaten and his friend Luke Morehouse. Over the course of the past 22 years, the Classic has grown into the premier catfish tournament in the region. It is held annually on the 1st Saturday of June in Glasgow, MT. Boundaries stretch from the Mouth of the Milk near Nashua/Fort Peck to the Bjornberg Bridge near Saco. It is a night-time event that annually boasts a full 80-team field and over $10,000 in guaranteed cash and prizes. The popularity of this event is evident when the tournament fills up several months in advance and over 500 people regularly show up for the famous “midnight weigh-ins” in downtown Glasgow. The Classic remains under the direction of its founder, Brenner Flaten.
