What Are Steelhead?
Steelhead are “anadromous”
fish, which means they are born
in freshwater, migrate to the
ocean, then return to freshwater to spawn.
While steelhead exhibit
general patterns in the timing
of migration and spawning, there is tremendous variation in these patterns.
Unlike salmon which die after spawning, steelhead may spawn several times.
