Angler Recognition Program Fish Record Search

Use the forms and links on this page to search current state and water body records. Browse the links at left to review the types of awards available and learn how you can submit your catch.

Starting June 1, 2021, the State Record Other Methods award category is undergoing a transition to be replaced by a State Record All-Tackle award category (largest fish by species caught by any legal means). Any application received after June 1 will now be considered for the State Record All-Tackle category, if applicable. No previous records for the State Record Other Methods category will be revoked. However, once the transition is completed, the listing for State Records Other Methods category will no longer be displayed.
