The Steelhead brand began as a tribute to steelhead and Coho salmon and our commitment to restoring their habitats in Northern California waterways. Working with state and university organizations as well as Trout Unlimited, our restoration efforts include, rebuilding spawning grounds within creek beds that have led to the return of Steelhead trout during the spring. The successful restoration of these watersheds has inspired others to do the same.
