Biggest Trout Ever Caught In Colorado: State Record Sized Trout
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.
There's a tie for the biggest brook trout ever caught in Colorado. Both Mark Armstrong and Garrett McBride caught a 26-inch long brook trout. Mark caught his record breaker on the Gunnison River and Garret caught his in Crystal Lake.
Here's another trout with two records. Sean Surniak holds the record for a cutthroat trout on the Snake River at 31 inches. And Jack Duerson holds the record for a native cuttie at 20 inches.
Trevor Nazzaro holds the record for Colorado's biggest tiger trout ever caught. This monster was 28 inches long and was caught at Bar 2X Ranch in Gunnison County.
The longest lake trout ever caught here in Colorado was 46 7/8 inches long. This trout was caught by Ryan VanLanen at Morrow Point Reservoir.
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.
