The Amazing Journey of the Clearwater River Steelhead
From the spawning beds of the Clearwater River tributaries where they hatch, juvenile Steelhead (smolt) travel hundreds of miles to the ocean. They endure multiple challenges along the way, including avoiding predators and navigating numerous dams. These anadromous fish (capable of living in both freshwater and saltwater) spend two to three years in the ocean preparing for their return. Once mature, they revert back to freshwater and begin the journey home. They migrate back to the location where they hatched, overcoming all the obstacles along the way. When the 500+ mile journey is complete, they spawn the next generation before expiring. The Idaho State record Steelhead was 30.13-lbs and 44-inches long, caught in 1973.
