Cautious handling a must during catch-and-release steelhead fishing

If there’s a consensus about anything in Northwest fishing circles, it’s that steelhead and salmon deserve the highest respect. Their migrations up and down natal streams and survival in the predator-infested nightmare of the ocean set them apart in the angler’s heart.
