So, I heard that state record fish have to be caught in public water. Is this true? I hope not, because I know where the new record lives, and its not public

All warm-water fishing records for the state of Oregon are kept by Oregon Bass and Panfish Club not by ODFW. (IMHO ODFW only cares about cold water fish so get used to it)
