may not be pretty, but it tastes way better than I had expected. I used hickory for the smoke.

Yum Yum, grilled fish will sometimes get ugly on the grill but the taste is worth it - - - - fish like that from real cold water environment that hasn't been frozen is as good as it gets :tup: :salut: :cheers:

Hey Russ
Steelhead are a sea run trout. Can get grow rather large but not as big as Salmon. Our state record is just over 30 lbs.
like Salmon they spawn in our local rivers and then at smolt they head out to the Pacific.
Unlike Salmon, the majority of Steelhead don't die after spawning. Once Steelhead have spawned they will return to the ocean and start the cycle all over again.
But alas as our Salmon runs Steelhead returns have declined to the point of being placed on the endanger species list. :(
Locally here recreational fishers have not been allowed to retain a wild Steelhead for over 25 years now and the runs still continue to decline. Lots of finger pointing as to the continued decline of the runs including habitat loss and gill netting of the rivers during the runs returns.

Anyways...nice catch TJ :salut: Fresh smoked Steelhead is hard to beat. You did good on both accounts.
