Although he originally thought it may be a catfish, Worsham soon realized he had hooked one of the only native trout species in the state. Game and Fish officials say the previous state record for hook-and-line in inland waters for Gila Trout belongs to a three pound, 5.6 ounces and 19-1/4 inches catch by Robert Woods in Flagstaff. That was back in 2011 at the Frye Mesa Reservoir.
