Yesterday I was able to see two steelhead (post spawn?) in a very urban PS stream in Tacoma. I was very surprised. I didn't realize they still existed in such a tiny stream in Tacoma.
Rainbows and steelhead are the same fish and spawn at the same time.were they possibly rainbows then? cause i was 100% sure they weren't salmon. It was a small stream so I got a good look at them
I won't sweat it as they do look different in their spawning colors versus what you are used to seeing in the salt.yeah they kinda looked like the bottom one with a red band but wow i was fooled for sure haha i feel dumb now
