Central Valley Steelhead

Oncorhynchus mykiss irideus

LEVEL OF CONCERN: MODERATE
Central Valley steelhead are not in danger of extinction but their numbers will remain low until river conditions that support their migratory life history improve. The highly- altered tail-water habitats downstream of dams select against anadromous life histories and instead favor resident life histories by supplying cool water year-round.
