If you read yesterdays story (Diamond Lake Memorial Day Weekend) you already know that fishing was terribly slow over the holiday at Diamond Lake. However, that didn’t stop one lucky kid from breaking the record for the largest trout caught from the lake since it was treated for tui chubs.

Apparently the massive midge hatch wasn’t enough for this huge rainbow that took Jarod Beal of Medford’s offering over the weekend. The trout weighed in at 9lbs 4oz and was 26.5 inches long. It beats the previous record caught last year by almost 2 pounds.
If this is any indication of things to come, it’s going to take one heck of a catch to win this years Black Bird 5000 Derby which is coming up soon on June 23rd.
Congrats Jared on your record catch.
