If you have not heard we have a new state record for rainbow trout. This fish from American Falls Reservoir Tuesday, 7/26, weighed just under 35 pounds and was taken on a jig in about fifteen feet of water. It was just over 41 inches in length. The weight of this fish is nearly double that of the previous state record and begs the question of how many fish in the reservoir weigh between the old and new record. Certainly there are even larger rainbows than the new record in the reservoir. Other than that, damselfly life cycle patterns are working everywhere in still waters, and speckled duns are beginning to show up. Particularly good fishing can be had at Sand Creek Ponds during afternoon hours. Again damselfly life cycle patterns with speckled duns are beginning to show there.
