Spring steelhead limits are three fish per day and nine in possession with no more than 20 fish for the season. Once limits are reached, the angler must stop fishing, even catch-and-release.

All other steelhead must be released immediately.
Anglers are reminded to consult the 2011-2012 fishing rules book for special restrictions and limits. A valid 2011 fishing license and a steelhead permit are required to fish for steelhead.
