Steelhead # 3351

For nearly two decades I’ve braced the chilly melt water of the Lostine River and still I am amazed by the diversity of behaviors I've observed among various species in this river system.  It is late August; most of the fish in the river are spawning Chinook salmon along with various resident rainbow, brook and bull trout. This fish did not look like a resident rainbow and I knew from the weir data sheets that this fish had been handled and passed up river earlier.  My best guess about this fish is that it may have ascended the Lostine earlier in the year, March and April, with the steelhead run, spawned and moved back downstream in late May.  It is not unusual for steelhead to repeat spawn and when their biology triggers this life history trait they are referred to as "Kelts".  Check out the full description to learn more about this fish.

I think the fish recovered lower in the watershed where spring and summer food was abundant and returned up the Lostine later in the summer seeking cooler water temperatures as the Wallowa and Grande Ronde can become lethally warm especially in late summer when I photographed this fish.  So that's my best guess about this fish!
