Kansas Angler Catches Monster Brown Trout

We’ve all heard about the enormous sizes that brown trout can reach, but it’s hard to wrap your brain around this recent catch from Arkansas.

According to a report from KARK 4 News, angler Calvin Johnston has caught the third-largest brown trout in Arkansas history. The 38.7-pound, 37.5-inch trout’s near-record status was confirmed by Christy Graham with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.

The fish was reportedly caught in the White River in Cotter, Arkansas.
