New Size Record for Fish Caught in Colorado

A 14-year-old from Golden set a record June 4 when he reeled in the heaviest fish ever caught (on record) in Colorado. Caught at Prospect Park Lake, the huge carp weighed in at 51 pounds. The Colorado Division of Wildlife keeps tally of Colorado’s angling records. For other record fish, including by weight and by length, see the DOW’s Awards and Records webpage. Also, for more on this year’s record carp, including a picture of the monster fish, see the DOW’s July 1 press release.
