A new state record for carp has been broken! Brenden Burnham caught this 35 pound, 3 ounce carp at Virginia Lake in Reno yesterday. The previous state record was 34 pounds 10 ounces. This is very exciting for us and for Brenden, who has caught and entered 46 carp trophy fish over 15 pounds in 2019. Congratulations Brenden! Buy your fishing license today at to see if you can break any records!
