Welcome to Steelhead University
Welcome to Steelhead University! It is my pleasure to bring you the most comprehensive salmon and steelhead site anywhere. At Steelhead University Salmon & Steelhead are what we do! Steelhead University FIshing Reports, both freshwater and Saltwater are from the best sources around. We recommend the best fishing gear, equipment and bait to ensure you the most success possible.
The sole purpose of this site is to help you catch more fish, whether it be Steelhead, Salmon, Trout or any other species. Steelhead are, and always have been, the most elusive and sought after gamefish in the Pacific Northwest. In addition to their elusive nature, they are perhaps the hardest-fighting freshwater gamefish in North America. However, even for the most experienced fisherman, catching these prized fish is always a challenge.
Steelhead University will provide useful information for both novice and experienced salmon and steelhead anglers on how, when, and where to catch these prized fish.
We'll have up-to-date reports, blogs, tech tips, product reviews, destination articles, and in-season updates related to steelhead and salmon fisheries throughout the Pacific Northwest. You'll also find useful links to weather forecasts, river levels, maps of major river systems, and other useful information to help you plan your next trip to the river or in the salt.
Steelhead University is brought to you by some of the Northwest's top anglers.
Along with our “new” look, we’re expanding into different areas as well: Fly Fishing and Saltwater Fishing.
As owner of Steelhead University, it’s my goal to give you all the information you need to become a more successful fisherman.
Thank you for viewing,
Terry J. Wiest
