John Grubenhoff of Pasco Pulls Washington State Record Walleye Out of Columbia River [PHOTO]
A Pasco man made a record-breaking catch while fishing near Lake Wallula on Feb. 28. John Grubenhoff pulled in a 20 pound walleye, a Washington state fishing record.
The 20.32-pound, 35.5-inch fish was more than a pound heavier and almost two inches longer than the previous record, which was held by a Richland man caught in Lake Wallula in 2007.
According to the state Department of Fish and Wildlife, Washington is nationally known for its walleye fishing. The fish can be found throughout the Columbia Basin.
