Fish Weight Table

Extraordinary handling of fish that are going to be released, is detrimental to their survival. Many weight scales can be damaging to the mouth area when used, particularly for larger fish. These are weight tables that will approximate weight based on fish length, permitting you to know how much your fish weighs, without undue handling. Exact weight of an individual fish may be higher or lower depending on whether the fish is above or below average.

I have not found a reference to a trout weight calculation that doesn't include girth. If you'd like to calculate the approximate weight of a trout you caught, length (in) x girth (in) x girth (in) / 800 is the formula. Of course, this means of estimating weight involves much more fish handling, so isn't ideal.
