Rainbow Trout Breaks RI Record

An angler named “Joe” (last name withheld) from North Kingstown, RI, has caught the new state record rainbow trout.

The fish weighed 12 pounds, 9.12 ounces, and measured 29.75 inches long, shattering the previous state record of 11 pounds, set in 1991.

It was taken from Barber Pond and brought to Quaker Lane Bait & Tackle, where it was officially weighed.
