Steelhead Trout is a coastal saltwater trout, returning to the sea after one to two years in the stream. It makes annual trips to freshwater to spawn. Recognizable during its freshwater spawning phase by its emerald skin, black spots, and ruby stripe along the lateral line, Steelhead is a great substitute for salmon. Our Steelhead Trout is flown fresh from Washington and Oregon.
