Pa Golden Trout Record



This story has a feel good ending.

Quakertown man catches potential Pennsylvania record golden rainbow trout - The Morning Call

"Catching the largest fish of any species is something of which to be proud, earning anglers bragging rights and often a prominent place in the record books.

For Mychael Althouse of Quakertown, landing a record-size trout meant something more important, so much so that he passed on the chance to have his name added to the books. More about that gesture later.

I've spent most of my money on Waterfowling, Women and Whiskey.
The rest of my money I just wasted.

Nice that he didn't seek the record of whatever but I hate golden rainbows or palaminos or whatever the heck they are. Stupidest fish IMO. Records for stocked fish are stupid.

Great story but i agree on why they keep records of tank raised fish that was just put in. IMO i wouldn't pursue a state record for a stocked fish.

Yep, nice fish and probably was a wonderful fight, but I don't know - somehow the fish having been thrown in makes it not a true pursuit to me. The fish was technically already possessed by someone else before it was released into the water... it didn't get that big through survival in the wild, it was engineered by the Fish Commission. Again, not to stomp on a great catch and I'm sure a wonderful memory, but that to me is the reason why it doesn't feel like it means as much as a true wild fish record.

That and the fact that it's bright freakin yellow It's a novelty, unnatural.

There's no doubt it's a novelty fish. I will say this, they tend to fight like mad and I really like the coloration, simply because they are an oddity. It's like seeing an albino deer in a way, or a barn-raised white turkey more like it. There's just something about them that is cool and different because you don't see them just all the time, and for people who enjoy their colors they are a pretty fish. Still, as much as I DO like these fish, I don't count them as true trophies.
