Steelhead Trout

Oncorhynchus mykiss


This was a juvenile. It was about 10-11 inches long. These fish put up a crazy fight. They jump more than largemouth bass.

Hi Dr. Ron,

Because you know the common name, could you please find the scientific name for spottings you know. Because there can be so many common names for one species, the PN search engine uses scientific names. The scientific name for this guy is Oncorhynchus mykiss.
