New Montana state record walleye caught in Holter Lake
Montana anglers have landed six new state record fish since last August. On May 10, Trevor Johnson of Helena added a seventh whopper to that list when he reeled in a nearly 3-foot-long walleye from Holter Lake near Helena. Johnson’s fish weighed in at 18.02 pounds on a certified scale, measured 32.25 inches in length, and 22 inches in girth. He caught the record-setting fish on a jig.
The previous state walleye record was set in 2007 with a 17.75-pound fish from Tiber Reservoir.
With a total of 91 native and introduced fish species found in Montana, interest in fish records has increased in recent years. FWP maintains the list of record fish, and it is available on FWP’s website at https://fwp.mt.gov/fish/anglingData/records
