One of the most important of the native salmon trout is the steelhead. It is found in the northwestern coast streams living part of the time in salt water, and spawns some in spring and others in the fall, at the heads of the streams. On very rare occasions these fish, it is said, reach a weight of twenty pounds. In shallow water the steelhead trout will rise to a fly, but the most of those caught with hook and line are taken by trolling with a spoon bait in deep water. Natural baits are also used, the favorite being salmon roe.
