New Idaho catch & release record steelhead landed

In the early morning of October 6th, Kyriacos Panayiotou of McCall waded into the cool waters of the Clearwater River, Idaho’s legendary steelhead mecca. Using a two-handed spey rod, he began searching the water, hoping a steelhead would grab the fly.

The fish that grabbed his fly measured 41 inches long – a full 1.75 inches longer than the previous catch-and-release state record set in 2021.
