Reservoir netting has begun and Wyoming Game and Fish Department has set the standard pretty high this year. Craig Amadio (WGFD biologist) sent me these pics of a 52-lb, 45-inch lake trout the crew netted near the stateline earlier this week. This fish would beat the current Utah record by 1.5 lbs and the current Wyoming record by 2 lbs. The fish was measured, weighed, pumped for stomach contents, and released to taunt anglers for years to come!
