Most trout are restricted to freshwater, but a few, like the steelhead (Oncorhynchus mykiss)—which is the same species as the landlocked rainbow trout—spend their adult life in the ocean and then return to spawn in the streams in which they were hatched. This is called anadromous reproduction and is more often seen in salmon. Trout generally feed on soft bodied invertebrates like worms, or insects, although larger specimens of some trout species regularly feed on other fish.

As a group, trout are a somewhat bony fish, but the flesh is considered good eating. Additionally, they provide a good fight when caught with a hook and line, and are sought after recreationally. Because of their popularity, trout are often raised on fish farms and introduced into the streams that are most heavily fished. While they can be caught with a normal rod and reel, fly fishing is a distinctive method developed primarily for trout and now extended to other species.
