Where're the trout streams?

I found this astonishing graphic on the Fly Fish Chick blog and downloaded it from another web site when I punched up :Global Distribution ... etc.......

Rivers, not all of which are clean and cold enough for trout, make up 1.6 percent of the world's total supply of freshwater.

Freshwater makes up 2.5 percent of the world's total water; the rest is oceans..

More than two-thirds of the freshwater is glaciers (68.7 percent) and nearly a third (30.1 percent) is hidden from all trout in groundwater.

So little (trout) water, so little time....
