SALT LAKE CITY — A 13-year-old boy holds the new Utah record for a golden trout catch in Utah.

According to the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, Isaac Vance caught a 14 7/8″-long golden trout in Marsh Lake in the High Uintas.

The fish weighs 18.88 ounces and has a girth of 7 3/4″.

Isaac’s catch breaks a 1977 record set by Breck Tuttle. Tuttle caught the previous record-setter in Atwood Creek.

It was 14.5″ long and weighed 14 ounces. (A girth measurement for Tuttle’s golden trout was unavailable.)
