Idaho has a new Record Rainbow Trout holder. What a beautiful fish! Congratulations Michelle Williams on your record catch. You have the envy of all of us fisher folks who dream of a fish this size. I won’t be able to sleep at nights for awhile putting this to rest. Oh, and by the way, Happy Birthday to you.
You see, all Michelle Williams of Pingree, Idaho, wanted to do for her 50th birthday was to go fishing. What an exciting present! Michelle’s big Rainbow Trout was a (20) pounder and measured in at (34 & 1/4″s).
She broke the previous state record that had been held for more than (60) years by an angler back in 1947 from Hayden Lake.
Michelle was fishing in the Tilden Bridge area near Pingree and was fishing a worm. She said other anglers were laughing at her thinking she was not reeling in a fish, but, had something else on the end of her bowed rod. The moral to the story is “They stopped laughing when I landed this big fish”. “Nuff said”.
