On Friday, August 6, 2010, Kim Fleming and his friend went trout fishing on Twin Lakes, just north of Rathdrum. To his surprise he ended up reeling in a record-size Northern Pike. The fish measured at 40 lbs. 2 oz. Fleming spent the afternoon at Idaho Fish and Game verifying his catch. He said he spent more than ten minutes struggling with the fish before he finally pulled it in.
Bob Ringer of Post Falls held the previous record of 39 lbs. 13 oz. since 2007.
Fleming says he should be able to get a dinner and a half out of his new catch.
