New Arizona State Record Rainbow Trout
Arizona angler Eric Smith has landed what should be a new Arizona state record Rainbow Trout. When verified the 7lb 15oz fish will eclipse the old record by more than 2lbs. The 25 inch long fish was caught in Green Valley Park Lake on a fly the angler called,"a wooly burger by Eric Smith."
"The catch of such a large, mature fish in a GVP lake surprised veteran anglers and biologists who have long believed most species die out during the hot summer months."
