Tennessee Has New State Record Rainbow Trout

leah kirk

Tennessee has a new state record rainbow trout caught by 15-year-old Benton resident John Morgan in Polk County on Friday, June 17.  The fish weighed 18 pounds and 8 ounces, measuring 32 inches long and 22 and one-fourth inches in girth. The catch surpasses the previous record for a rainbow trout in Tennessee of 16 pounds, 15 ounces which was set in 2002 by Ronnie Rowland at Ft. Patrick Henry Reservoir. Morgan caught the record fish in a farm pond owned by his grandfather's friend. He had agreed to help remove a snapping turtle from the pond and was invited to bring a fishing pole along. Morgan didn’t know that this favor would lead to a new state record. After 45 minutes, Morgan had fished a little, caught the turtle and decided to fish for another 10 minutes before leaving. He cast again and after a 20 minute struggle, he had the fish on shore. A sophomore at Polk County High School, Morgan fishes several days a week, mostly in the Hiwassee River. “I just love being outside, hunting and fishing,” said Morgan. Morgan has already dropped the fish off at a taxidermist!
