What is a steelhead? Steelhead is a sea run rainbow trout and can vary from 1-30 pounds. A steelhead trout spends two or three years in a fresh water river environment before migrating to the open ocean to feed. They return to their natal streams to spawn with timing that is unique to each location. Unlike Pacific salmon, steelhead trout do not die after spawning. They will migrate to sea with the chance to return again as a larger fish.
