BOISE, Idaho (CBS 2) — An 8-year-old broke an Idaho record after she caught a 36.5-inch rainbow trout.
Sophie Egizi set a new catch-and-release Gerrard rainbow trout record catching this monster from Lake Pend Oreille.
“Congratulations to Sophie Egizi on setting a new catch-and-release record Gerrard rainbow trout!” said the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. “The 8-year-old angler wrangled up the 36.5-inch monster while trolling flies on Idaho’s famous Lake Pend Oreille in early October.”
The lake apparently has a well-deserved reputation for being home to many trophy trout. It still holds the certified weight record Gerrard rainbow of 37 pounds in 1947.
