Sink Rates in 55 Degree Fresh Water
|Lookup tables on this page provide the solution to the equations on the Sink Rate Science page for a wide range of sinking line grain weights, diameters, and water temperatures. The 55 degree fresh water table is a good standard for most purposes.
Sink rates are slightly less in colder water and salt water and are slightly higher in warmer water. We offer additional tables below for those who want more exact information. However, the differences are relatively minor: just a few percent one way or the other relative to standard 55 degree fresh water table.
For "in-between" sink rates, or for unusual fly lines that are outside the ranges covered by these tables, use our sink rate and rule number calculator.
