Everybody dreams about breaking their current state's trout fishing record. Well, this year two people actually did it in Arizona - and one of them was only 23 days ago!
Most states have two types of freshwater records - one for the biggest trout caught and one for 'catch and release'.
The new Arizona 'catch and release' record was set in March by Jeff Senn when he reeled in a 22 inch Rainbow trout out of Silver Creek (near Show Low).
Then only 23 days ago, Harold Wright reeled in a Rainbow Trout weighing 15 lbs. 9.12 oz. and measuring 32.5 inches! He caught it in Willow Springs Lake (near Payson). The previous record weighed in at 12 lbs. 5.76 oz. (same length).
This goes to prove .... Records are made to be broken! The next one could be YOURS!
