4-Year-Old Lands Potential World Record Golden Trout

World Record Golden Trout

Caroline May Evans was fishing on a Wyoming alpine lake when a hefty California Golden Trout took her lure and potentially netted her a chance at an IGFA “Smallfry” World Record.

IGFA’s Small Fry category is set up for boys and girls age 10 or younger. They must abide by all IGFA international angling rules “with the exception that fish do not have to be weighed on land.”

For the sake of comparison, the IGFA’s overall world record for golden trout stands at 11 pounds. That fish was caught by Chas Reed at Cooks Lake, Wyoming, in 1948.
