Wallowa kokanee top fish for 2010?

Ron Campbell of La Grande, Ore., holds a 9.67-pound kokanee caught June 13, 2010, in northeastern Oregon's Wallowa Lake. The fish was later verified by the International Game Fish Association as the world record in two categories:  the 22-year-old all-tackle record and the largest fish recorded in the 12-pound test line class.

FISHING -- As I research the top outdoor stories of 2010, the series of record kokanee caught this year from Oregon's Wallowa Lake comes readily to the surface.

Can anyone in the Inland Northwest top the story of Ron Campbell of La Grande, Ore., who landed a 9.67-pound kokanee on June 13 in the northeastern Oregon lake?

The fish was later verified by the International Game Fish Association as the world record in two categories:  the 22-year-old all-tackle record and the largest fish recorded in the 12-pound test line class.
