Utah's DWR reports a new state record brook trout was caught on July 15. The information below is from DWR:

Trent Syme of Payson, Utah caught the new state record brook trout from an undisclosed lake on the Boulder Mountains. The brook trout officially weighed in at 7 pounds 9 ounces, surpassing the old state record brook trout by a single ounce, which was caught in 1971 by Milton Taft.

Syme caught the brook trout on July 15 by using a marabou jig. Like many of the Boulder Mountain anglers that have had success catching large brook trout, Syme was hesitant to disclose the particular lake on the mountain where the trophy was caught.
