Steelhead are fun to catch and even better to eat. They're part of the salmon family, with a color, taste and texture similar to salmon, according to the Seattle Fish Company of New Mexico. For most fishers on the Great Lakes, the winter steelhead season doesn't start until late November. If you have a boat and are able to keep its windshield free of ice, though, you can enjoy these salmon-like fish earlier in the month by catching them offshore.
