New Utah Record Cutthroat Trout!
Talk about a great way to shake off Cabin Fever! Curtis Robinson caught this massive 31½-inch cutthroat trout at East Canyon Reservoir and it’s being recognized as the largest cutthroat trout ever caught and released in Utah.
It’s great that Robinson released the fish and what’s also very cool is that he caught it on a homemade marabou jig.

what did you use to get that monster
Wow nice fish, that had to be a tough decision,for him to let go, maybe another record for some on else.
Mel Ewing says
I always enjoy reading about a real class act. Catching such a fish is a real accomplishment that was then documented with a great photo for his wall. Then releasing the great fish to grow even larger and for someone else catch on another day is a real show of character. Kudos to Curtis robinson for his catching of such a fish and it’s release.
NICE! moving to Utah, well maybe just to fish, Montana in September the best!!!

He released it! Wow….. That would have been mounted on the wall….
Courtney Robinson says
He is planning on mounting the fish with a fiberglass reproduction. You can give a picture to the taxidermist to ensure it looks like the real thing. The problem for Curtis is that they don’t make Cutthroat blanks this big, so he is going to have do get a different trout or salmon blank to use.
