CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — The Division of Natural Resources says a record rainbow trout was caught in Berkeley County.

DNR director Frank Jezioro says the trout was caught by Tony Corbin of Gerrardstown on May 2 from a private pond. The fish weighed 17.3 pounds.

Corbin used a swimbait on 10-pound test line to catch the fish.

The previous weight record for a rainbow trout was a 15.65-pound fish set in 2005.

The length of the fish caught by Corbin was 30.5 inches. That fell short of the state record of 31.7 inches set in 1993.
