Schuyler Dutremaine of Farmington poses with a five-pound rainbow trout she caught last weekend at Lake Pagosa in Colorado.
It was the first catch ever for Dutremaine, who will turn 6 years old May 11.
She caught the fish on power bait.
“Several minutes in to the fight, she said she didn't think she could reel anymore but, with some encouragement, finished the fight. It made me, my family, and several onlookers jealous and in awe of this determined kid,” said Gene Fosnot, a witness to the catch.
