The famed southern California fishery, New Melones Lake, has a new record brown trout.
Michael Oliveira caught a 13-pound, 4-ounce brown trout on Dec. 30, breaking the existing record by an ounce. Using a shad-patterned lure, Oliveira cast to a large swirl, and the big female was full of eggs, "dropping them like crazy," according to the Calaveras Enterprise.
The fish had a girth of 20.5 inches and was 26.5 inches long. --Brian McClintock
