About the maple river
The Maple River is a 50-mile-long river in North Dakota that originates near Anamoose and flows into the Sheyenne River in Cass County. Its name comes from the abundance of sugar maple trees that used to grow along its banks. In the early 1900s, the Maple River was used for transportation and irrigation by local farmers. Today, the river is primarily used for recreation, including fishing, canoeing, and kayaking. The Maple River has several reservoirs throughout its length, including the Carpenter, Lake Juanita, and Baldhill reservoirs. The Carpenter Dam was built in 1928 and is used to regulate water levels and generate hydroelectric power. The Baldhill Dam was built in 1950 and is used for flood control. The Maple River is also used for irrigation, with several irrigation canals diverting water for agricultural use.
