Run, trout, run!

Steelhead trout, or oncorhynchus mykiss, swim up-stream at Four Mile Creek on Sunday. Often confused for salmon, Steelhead trout also return to the rivers in which they were born to spawn. They will not always die after spawning, however, unlike salmon. Steelhead spawning occurs in the spring, with the peak of spawning occurring in mid-April.
