There are two bolted lines between Shadowcaster and Bigmouth. Not sure which is Trout Fishing in America. The left one is the easier of the two. Both are at least a couple of letter grades easier than Bigmouth. Both have interesting moves to high cruxes.

Trout Fishing in America is the right of the two lines; Fishlips is the left line and is now in the route database.
