The greatest golden trout I have actually ever captured had to do with 13 inches long. I captured it here in Wyoming, at practically 12,000 feet above water level. That fish was far from the typical prize requirements they grow to here in the Cowboy State. I understand a lot of anglers who have actually captured 20-inch (or bigger) goldens.
What I have not seen, nevertheless, is a golden trout that goes beyond 6 approximately pounds. Mark Heinz, over at Cowboy State Daily, appeared to believe the very same thing when he composed his current story about Wyoming’s present state record golden trout.
The present record is an 11-pound, 4-ounce specimen captured from Cook Lake back in 1948. According to Heinz, that’s more than double the size that a Wyoming state biologists thinks golden trout can obtain.
