Record Rainbow Trout (Steelhead) for Ontario

This monster Rainbow Trout beats the old Ontario record by 11 pounds.

A record fish has been caught in the waters of Lake Huron, landing a Sudbury woman top spots in the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters' Record Fish Registry and new Ontario Angler Awards.

This week, the Royal Ontario Museum and the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters verified that a 40.68 pound rainbow trout, caught off the shores of Little Current on September 21, is now an official Ontario record fish. The monster rainbow trout surpasses the previous Ontario record, caught in 1975 near Midland, by over 11- pounds.

"We're just happy to go out fishing. We never thought of catching a record fish ourselves," said 43-year old Joanne Vendramin who, for the past 15 years, has enjoyed hundreds of family fishing trips with her husband and two boys.
