Record tiger trout

It looks like a new state record tiger trout has been caught in Utah. The monster fish was caught by by Santaquin’s Trent Peery. Peery’s fish measured 32 1/4 inches long and weighed 15 pounds. The fish had a girth measurement of 20 inches. The paperwork that will make Peery’s catch official has been sent to the DWR’s Salt Lake City office to be finalized. “It’s worth noting that Trent also caught another tiger trout the same day that measured approximately 25 inches,” says Brent Stettler, regional conservation outreach manager for the DWR. “There appears to be more large fish under the ice right now. The ice fishing season isn’t over at Scofield. There may yet be another state record out there.” A tiger trout is a cross between a brown trout and a brook trout.

Big game hunt

Time is running out to get your application in to hunt big game animals in Utah this fall. Applications to hunt big game — including deer — are due through no later than 11 p.m. on March 1. Before you apply for a general deer hunting permit, make sure to visit gov/ncx. The Web page has information that will help you decide which of Utah’s 30 new deer hunting units to apply for. If you decide to apply for a Utah big game hunting permit, Judi Tutorow, wildlife licensing coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources, has some advice: Apply before the last day of the application period. And when you apply, don’t forget to donate some dollars to help control coyotes in Utah. Tutorow also encourages you to consider joining Utah’s Dedicated Hunter program.

Snow Goose Festival

The Snow Goose Festival is set for Friday through Sunday near Gunnison Bend Reservoir, just west of Delta. Admission is free. As many as 20,000 light geese -— mostly snow geese — have been at the reservoir during past festivals. Except for the black tips on their wings, snow geese are pure white. “We’ll provide spotting scopes so you can get a close look at the geese,” says Bob Walters, Watchable Wildlife coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources. “We’ll also be available to answer any questions you have.” Walters says if you arrive early in the morning, you can watch the geese feeding in fields that surround the reservoir. Then, at about 10:30 a.m., the geese take off and fly back to the reservoir. After landing on the reservoir, the geese usually spend the next few hours there. “Then, anywhere from 4 to 6 p.m., they take off again and fly back to the fields,” Walters says.
