The red-haired boy who briefly chats with Bullock's nephew tells William he calls the large trout down the stream "Jumbo." The word jumbo, in reference to something unusually large had it's first usage in American English in 1897, and stems from the famously huge circus elephant, Jumbo, who was brought to the U.S. by P.T. Barnum in 1882. As this season is set in 1876, it's very unlikely that the word would be common - or even uncommon - parlance at that time.
