BOISE — Now that is a giant pig of a rainbow trout from the lower 48!
A giant rainbow trout was just caught in the North Fork of the Clearwater River near Orofino last week.
The angler, Larry Warren, released the fish after weighing it in at more than 28 pounds. That’s an entire eight pounds heavier than the current Idaho state record rainbow!
It unfortunately won’t go in the record books because it was released, but good for Larry in preserving such a beast to keep that big DNA in the system.
