I cant speak for everyone here, but Ive never seen Steelhead acclimating to freshwater. Most of the pods Ive seen coming right out of the salt have the pedal to the metal and move very quickly. This could very well be because of all the @!#$% seals waiting to ambush them!
Ive seen some fish typically hold near the tidal influence line in the river but again very briefly and then they push on. Not sure this acclimation premise is a valid one.
