Idaho’s largest legally caught rainbow trout was landed below Dworshak Dam in 2013, but the 28-pound, 9-ounce fish isn’t an official record. Nez Perce member Tui Moliga of Lapwai legally caught the lunker under tribal rules. But the North Fork Clearwater was closed to nontribal harvest of rainbows over 20 inches, so it didn’t qualify for state-record status.
