The Mississippi River is one of the most notable rivers in the world. It originates in Lake Itasca, Minn., and flows approximately 2,350 miles to the Gulf of Mexico. It first served as a corridor for settlement by Native Americans and later as a major mode of transportation for European-American settlers. In a recent promotional video interview for Guttenberg, area fisherman Ray Black noted, "Fishing on the Mississippi River is second to none. You can catch about any kind of fish there in this great waterway."
