Would-Be Record Rainbow: 11-year-old angler catches and releases 25-pounder

By Dave Hurteau & Chad Love

About a month ago, 11-year-old Levi Lenard of Burlington, Kansas, caught an enormous rainbow trout while flyfishing Arkansas’ Dry Run Creek with his dad. As state regulations require the immediate release fish caught from the creek, father and son took a picture of the monster trout and let it go. Now, after studying photographs, an Arkansas Game and Fish Commission trout biologist has estimated the trout’s length at 30 to 32 inches, its girth at 20 to 22 inches, and its weight at near 25 pounds—more than enough to break the Arkansas state record of 19 pounds, 1 ounce. Here’s the story, with a picture of Levi’s would-be record.
