August 23, 2018 - Lake Record Walleye

E-mail Print PDF

Olga and Clay Middlebrook were trolling in Ticaboo Canyon on August 23, 2018 using a crank bait and steel leader when Olga hooked a monster. The huge walleye was 11 pounds 4 ounces, weighed on a brand new digital scale. The fish was 31 and 1/8 inches long, with a girth of 17 and 5/8 inches. The fish was then released to swim and perhaps be caught again.

This surpasses the old record of 9 pounds 15 ounces, 28 inches long, caught by Lannie Sitterud, in Two Mile Canyon in 1991. That record held up for 27 years. 

Congratulations to Olga Middlebrook the new "Walleye Queen" at Lake Powell!
