The seasons are covered seperately as the wind has different influence over the year:
The temperatures in the drawings are in degrees Celcius (Centigrade) and correspond to Farenheit almost as follows:
The formula for converting between the two is
The optimum temperature for trout is between 9 and 12 deg. Centigrade.
