: Summer Fishing?

I was just curious what species others fish for during the summer when steelhead and salmon are less likely to be available. I fish for trout in the Upper Midwest (WI & MI) and smallies on some of the steelhead streams. I started to fish for smallies when I walked a couple of steelhead streams a few summers ago to see what the river looked like when the water was low and took a long a 5 wt. The trout fishing is mainly WI spring creeks with an occasional run over the MI big rivers. This may be the year we visit Canada for salmon during the summer.

Good question. I also fish for smallmouth and trout in the summer as well as salmon in Canada. I have about a month until I go to Gaspe. You should definitely put Atlantic salmon on your list. It is quite the experience. :D

Atlantic Salmon will be added to the list. Enjoy Gaspe.
