These trout aren't just any trout, they are state record size trout. From brookies to cutties to rainbows and more, these are Colorado's biggest trout.

I can't imagine catching a fish that's over 40 inches long, I'd be happy to catch a fish that's half that size. These are the biggest trout ever caught in Colorado, based on their length.

    Rainbow Trout

    The largest rainbow trout caught was a whopping 40 1/4 inches and was caught in the Taylor River. Congrats, Tony Felcilda, I'd love to catch a trout even half that size.
