North Dakota Record Lake Trout

Royce Johnston’s catch March 6 broke a state record that hadn’t been touched in 30 years.

The New Town angler reeled in a 16-pound, 6-ounce lake trout from the Garrison Dam Tailrace.

The 33.5-inch fish broke the old record by more than two pounds. The previous record of 14 pounds, 4 ounces was taken from the Tailrace in 1982.
