Idaho fisherman, Jordan Rodriguez, had a good winter fishing day on December 12th at Grasmere Reservoir.  He brought in a 20-inch Lahontan cutthroat trout that was officially weighed at 2.27-lbs., according to the Idaho Department of Fish and Game.

Here’s what Fox News reported:

The angler “landed a very nice 20-inch Lahontan cutthroat trout,” Fish and Game said. “The 2.27-pound cutthroat was big enough to set a new certified weight record, passing the previous 1.17-lb record set by Hayleigh Urban earlier in September.”

“With winter finally here, you might have thought we were done with new record fish for a while. Nope, not yet,” the department said in a release.
