Fishing Report : Irvine Lake Has Rainbow Trout Record

Steve Finney of Corona set an Irvine Lake rainbow trout record Wednesday morning when he caught a 14-pound 9-ounce fish while trolling a lure along the lake's west shore.

Finney's fish probably weighed more when he caught it. He caught the fish at 7:30 a.m. but didn't weigh it until 2:15 p.m. It measured 30 1/2 inches long and had a 21-inch girth. Finney said he caught it 40 yards from shore, in 15 to 20 feet of water.
