Caught last week by my boss. Can't remember what lake he said he caught this on but it was up north somewhere (Around william/PG ish). 19lbs, hands down biggest trout I've ever seen. They cut open the stomach to show the kids what fish eat and found a complete intact 16" fish skeleton with some white meat still left on it...

Looks like a Brown. Grew up in PG and they are a common fish in the lakes up there, but that's a big fawker!

http://www.coloradofisherman.com/SpeciesPhotos/brown_trout.jpg The brown trout was first brought into this state in the 1890s and is now abundant from high mountain streams to broad rivers flowing onto the plains. These fish can be difficult to catch, but many anglers have good success during their fall spawning runs. A large dark spotting pattern and reddish dots can help anglers distinguish these fish from rainbows and cutthroats.
http://www.coloradofisherman.com/SpeciesPhotos/lake_trout.jpg Lake trout, also known as Mackinaw, are the largest trout in North America. Mackinaws have white spots on a dark background with a deep fork in their tail. As the name suggests, these fish are found in mountain lakes and are usually in deeper water. Anglers also enjoy success with this species during the fall and spring in shallower areas and when ice-fishing.
