Don Walker - who's fished the reservoir since it opened more than 40 years ago - landed a new state record mackinaw, or lake trout, May 23 on the lake; and Larry Cornell, who was nearby when Walker caught the monster fish, held the previous record, set in 2002.
Walker's fish tipped the scales at 50.35 pounds, measured 44 1/4 inches in length with 34 3/8-inch girth. That beat Cornell's record by about 3 1/2 pounds.
