“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountain is going home; that wildness is necessity; that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life.”

Does this count, If it doesn't make the chart below ?

Y E S I T D O ... Definitely Lotic Though!!!

As rainbow trout grow longer, they increase in weight. The relationship between length and weight is not linear. The relationship between total length (L, in inches) and total weight (W, in pounds) for nearly all species of fish can be expressed by an equation of the form:

W = cL^b\!\,

Invariably, b is close to 3.0 for all species, and c is a constant that varies among species. For lentic rainbow trout, b = 2.990 and c = 0.000426, and for lotic rainbow trout, b = 3.024 and c = 0.000370.[5]

The relationship described in this section suggests that a 13-inch lentic rainbow trout will weigh about 1.0 pound, while an 18-inch lentic rainbow trout will weigh about 2.5 pounds.

  1. According to the empirical equation provided, the above fish weighs a mere 38/1000 lbs. Guess I really didn't need the 3X tippet 'Meriwether Lewis' suggested.
