State Angling Record Broken in Page County

27 May 2019 Luray/Page County News


A state angling record was broken in Page County this spring.

The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries announced Friday (5/24/2019) that its State Record Committee reviewed and certified a new state record for brook trout caught by hook and line. Thomas Garth of Standardsville landed a 5 pound, 15 ounce fish from Cub Run in Page County that measured 20 ¼ inches long. The trophy sized fish was caught with a fly rod, and Garth used a minnow as bait. His Page County catch is now recognized as the Virginia State Record Brook Trout.
