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.
