State record Rainbow pulled!

Recommended Posts

The state record Rainbow trout, a 17-pound, 6-ounce fish caught near the Knife River in 1974, was removed at the request of the man who caught it. In a signed affidavit, Ottway Stuberud said the application was entered with incorrect information and asked that the record be removed.

The state record for Rainbow trout will revert to the previous record, a 15-pound, 7-ounce steelhead caught near Two Harbors in 1970 by Clifford Lovold.

There needs to be state records for in land stream trout!

I've always wondered why not? Especially with all of the State Management for Streams in MN!

ALl Trout records are from lakes or rivers adjoining the Great Lakes.

There should be a "inland" record being a true rainbow trout and a "coastal" record being a steelhead trout.
Looking at a true rainbow and steel head there is quite a difference in the two mainly being the difference in the body shape.

I think the biggest discrepency is between lake brooke trout and stream brooke trout. A 17 incher on a stream is a beast but is rather common on the lakes.

Hey Jim W., Don't forget us norderners who are out catching these stream trout in da lakes. We aren't as fortunate as y'all with all your streams but we still get some big rainbows up here in a few lakes. My buddy's got a nine pounder on his wall pulled from a local lake. Go get 'em.

No offense, but to me, if it isn't raised, swims and eats in a stream, it isn't a stream trout!lol

Not sure how we can push taht forward, but it is definitely worth investigating!!

There has been some very large trout caught in SE MN. However, it might have something to do with brude(sp?) stocked mega females etc. So differentiating, between them at the tape/scale might cause some heat!?

Well it's offical now. Scott Thorpe's 16-pound 6- ounce steelhead is being recognized as the new state record rainbow trout.
The trout was caught in the Devil Track River in Cook County more than 20 years ago.
