State fisheries officials have confirmed that the 27-pound northern pike caught at Yuba Reservoir is the new Utah angling record for the species. Vladan Zoranovic of Salt Lake caught the 45-inch pike, shattering the pervious record of 25 pounds, also caught at Yuba.
Again, for the record, the longest - and likely heaviest - northern pike documented in Utah was the 49 3/4 inch monster caught at Lake Powell in 1998. That fish is the current catch and release record.
