    Record Rainbow Trout Caught in American Falls Reservoir
    Location: Idaho

    Michelle V. Larsen-Williams of Pingree broke a 61-year-old record when she caught a new state record rainbow trout on the Snake River just above American Falls Reservoir on July 29.

    The fish weighed just over 20 pounds. It was 34 1/4 inches long with a girth of 22 1/4 inches. She caught it with a worm, on 14 pound test line and a 12 pound leader.

    It is the third rainbow trout weighing more than 18 pounds that has been caught in the American Falls Reservoir, and right below and above it, this summer.

    The past rainbow trout record was a 19 pounder caught by R.M. Williams in November 1947 in Hayden Lake.
