Utah had a big year for state records in 2022, according to the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources. They had 11 new state fishing records set last year:
Black bullhead: Set by Taylor Hadlock on July 19 at Quail Creek Reservoir. The fish was 16 inches long.
Black crappie: Set by Draygen Picklesimer on April 18 at Quail Creek Reservoir. The fish was 16 ¾ inches long.
White crappie: Set by Taylor Shamo Feb. 9 at Gunnison Bend Reservoir. The fish was 12 ⅞ inches long.
Bonneville cutthroat trout: Set by Eli Gourdin on April 18 at Lost Creek Reservoir. The fish was 25 ¼ inches long.
Colorado River cutthroat trout: Set by Eli Gourdin on March 25 at Currant Creek Reservoir. The fish was 22 inches long.
Tiger trout: Set by David MacKay on May 6 at Fish Lake. The fish was 29 ¼ inches long. This record was then broken by R. Wade Nielsen at Currant Creek on Dec. 26. He caught and released a 30-inch tiger trout. The record was then again broken just four days later on Dec. 30 by Fotu Katoa after he caught a 31.5-inch tiger trout at Joes Valley Reservoir.
Walleye: Set by Jon Torrence on April 15 at Utah Lake. The fish was 33 inches long.
