Steelhead.

Wild Steelhead are only found in a fraction of their historical range.  Please carefully handle these fish and practice catch and release.  Take a moment to read Dylan Tomine's State of the Steelhead. Donate to Native Fish Society or Wild Steelhead Coalition.  Volunteer for habitat restoration.  And in between all your good deeds, wander our updated gallery full of beautiful wild steelhead caught and released by some spectacular female anglers.

We feel it is important to remove hatchery steelhead from the river systems helping free up spawning areas for wild steelhead as well as helping preserve these wild strains. Whether you choose to bonk them is up to you.
