On the Canadian-US border lies a vast and brooding lake that hides a dark history. For Native Americans it’s an ancient and sacred site. But recently something has risen up from the depths to attack swimmers and stories abound of an invasion of primordial bloodsuckers.

In a journey that takes him to the heart of a thundering waterfall in the Pacific Northwest, extreme angler Jeremy Wade embarks on a punishing mission to catch the most ancient River Monster of his career.
