For the second time in about a month, the trout fishing record was smashed at Los Vaqueros, this time by 2.7 pounds. Fernando Gonzalez of San Lorenzo caught his 16.42 pound trout with a gold Kastmaster, in South Cove on January 24, 2015.
It was just on December 20, 2014 that David Bixler of San Jose brought home his record 13.72 pound trout to break the old record by more than a half-pound, also with a Kastmaster. It was the first fishing record set at the expanded reservoir.
Prior to the latest monster fish activity, the trout record at Los Vaqueros lay dormant at 13.2 pounds for 5 years. Kastmasters seem to have a lock on Los Vaqueros fishing, a Kastmaster was used to catch the first fish ever landed at Los Vaqueros back in 2001.
