    Boise teen could have possible new Idaho Rainbow Trout Fish Record
    Location: Idaho

    Jake Cecil, 16, was fishing with a worm in the Boise River below Lucky Peak Dam on Thanksgiving weekend when he hooked a large rainbow trout that could be a new rainbow trout state record.

    Cecil caught the 30 inches long with a 25-inch girth using a worm with 8 lb. test line.

    Not even thinking it could be a state record, Cecil gutted the rainbow trout before taking it to his grandpappy Tom Money of Boise, where he took the photo.

    According to formulas that estimate fish weights based on length and girth, its live weight would have been more than 23 pounds. That would shattered the former record of 19 pounds taken from Hayden Lake by R.M. Williams in 1947.

    Cecil estimated it took between 10 and 20 minutes to land the fish. His brother, Nick Wheeler of Boise, helped land it, and then "we just kind of stood in awe," Cecil said.
