Colorado man catches 48-inch, record-breaking trout in Utah
DAGGETT COUNTY, Utah — A Colorado man caught a record-breaking trout last month in Utah, and the large fish is still swimming in the water where it was found. Matt Smiley, of Fairplay, Colo., caught a 48-inch lake trout at Flaming Gorge Reservoir last month. He later released the trout, setting the catch-and-release state record for lake trout, according to a Facebook post from the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.
