Hi There.
Can you help me.
If a fish is 10 inches what is that in Lbs(pounds) and oz(ounces) that is in Imperial measurements.
Thank you Kindly.
The Laird.

hello,
welcome to the rwff board community
:)

since we release all the fish we catch, we cannot easily know their weight, therefore we measure the length in inches
:P

1 inch = approx. 2,54 cm

all the best,
taupo

On the Rogue River they catch what is known as "half pounders". These are small Steelhead that run up the river their first year.
These fish average a half pound and are 15" to 16", but can be bigger.
Summer Steelhead, they say a pound for each inch over 20". A 28" Steelhead would be about 8 lbs, a 32" would be about 12 pounds, and so on. This "rule of thumb" was fairly accurate.
I never weighed a small fish like a 10" trout,....I don't think it would weigh but 5 or 6 oz. :?: (This is only my opinion)

Thank you Kindly for taking the time to reply.
You see I have always used imperial measurement and find inches a wee bit strange.
I find Myself thinking what is the weight of the fish I have just caught.
Once again Thank you Kindly.
The Laird.
