You may increase your odds of catching record size fish by hitting up Flaming Gorge this summer. The Division of Wildlife Resources announced this month that a new Utah catch-and-release fishing record has been set on the reservoir. Sidney Cellon of Soda Springs, Idaho set the record on July 3rd. His catch was a monstrous 48-inch lake trout weighing 57 pounds. Sidney wasn’t the only lucky angler to catch a record breaker this summer on the Gorge. Just days earlier, a Rock Springs fisherman caught a catfish in Flaming Gorge that broke the state record in Wyoming. The catch was over 28.5 pounds, nearly 39 inches long and over 23 inches round. Angler Christian Cosby beat the old record by over half a pound.
