Drifting a spawn sack from the snow covered edge of a stream a Steelhead takes the bait and the angler sets the hook. The fish dances while being played to the net. Steelheads like fast water over 42 degrees with a preference of 55 to 65 degrees. In lakes they are silvery with a dark back, white stomach and a pinkish lateral line. During the spawn the male develops a hooked jaw. Rainbow and Steelhead trout are different strains of the same species of fish and not natives. They are Pacific Coast stock and tend to longer and more streamlined.
