Pennsylvania State Record Steelhead Trout

April 17, 2001

A 20-lb., 3-oz. steelhead trout caught April 1 has been named the new Pennsylvania state record for the species. No fooling.

The 36 ˝ -inch fish was landed by Corey T. Brown, 26, of Osterburg while fly fishing in Walnut Creek, Erie County.

 The male steelhead boasted a girth of 21 ˝ inches. Brown’s record-setter broke the previous mark of 19 lbs., 2 oz. by more than a pound. The former record was set in 1992 by Brian Daugherty of East Freedom with a Lake Erie steelhead.

To be considered for state record certification, a fish must be caught using legal means, in season, from Pennsylvania waters open to the public without charge or fee. Fish taken from farm ponds, fee-fishing lakes, ponds or streams or in waters restricted to use by club members or their guests do not qualify. Potential record fish must exceed the established benchmark by at least one ounce, as weighed on a certified scale.

The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) is the only entity that can certify a new state record fish in the Commonwealth.
