Firstly, I know this question is subjective, but I just had to ask because it has happened to me so many times. I am fishing one of our north Seattle streams and catch a lovely little steelhead in the 14” to 18” range. This fish is white and chrome, thick and heavy for its size, so it has been to sea. So, what do I call this around here? Is this a steelhead? If not, than what size does a “sea-run rainbow” have to be in order to be called a steelhead? Secondly, do I call this a “half pounder” even though it really isn’t as those Rogue fish have a life cycle all their own as I understand it. Thirdly, and this is more scientific, is this a “jack-steelhead”? I am asking this because I was fishing the S______ the other day and caught a lovely white little doe about 15” in length. I thought it was the squirrelliest SRC I had ever hooked because it was in some slower water but it turned out to be a little steelhead.
