- When Matt Smiley of Lake City, Colorado, pulled a massive brook trout to the shore of Hinsdale County’s Waterdog Lake, he broke a record that had stood for 75 years. That same record has now been broken three times in 2022 alone.
- On October 8, Smiley set the new record for heaviest brook trout caught in Colorado, pulling in a fish that was 26.25 inches long with a girth of 16 inches and a weight of eight pounds, nine ounces.
- While the long-standing brook trout weight record was set in 1947 by a fish pulled from Summit County’s Upper Cataract Lake weighing 7.63 pounds, that threshold was broken twice in 2022 ahead of Smiley’s catch.
