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
I thought you could just take pics and measurements and have one witness to get in the record books?
To answer the question, YES it must be caught in public waters.
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)
Below is a link to the application for State Record fish.
