Biggest lake trout of the spring netting - 34-pounder at Flaming Gorge

The lunker laker expedition continues at Flaming Gorge Reservoir where Flaming Gorge Project Leader Ryan Mosley reports that big fish live all over the lake. Here's his report from Friday morning.

We conducted lake trout netting at Antelope Flat this morning, and hosted a "job shadow", Adalade Cook from Vernal, Utah. She decided to hang around some biologists that reeked of fish after a long week of netting. She picked a good day to attend too, as the weather was fair, nets were full, and we boated our biggest lake trout of the week. Her smile says it all as she hugs a 34-lber just before it was released back to the cold depths of Flaming Gorge.
