Wallowa Lake does it again: A 7-pound, 8-ounce kokanee!

The legend of Oregon's trophy kokanee factory, Wallowa Lake, continues! If you recall, the lake gave up an 8.23-pound U.S. record kokanee in March of 2010, an 8-pound, 13 ouncer two months later, and then the new all-tackle world record 9.67 pounder in June of the same year.
Then things hit a bit of a lull until June 2011 when Brian Russell bagged a mammoth, 26-inch, 7-pound, 8-ounce kokanee. What's more impressive is he caught the fish on 4-pound test!
