Spey/Switch Rods and Target Fish
What kinds of fish do you target with your Spey and switch rods?
Here in Northern California, there are a variety of fish that can be caught with a Spey or switch rod. Most of the year, I'll target local Rainbow Trout on my home waters, the Lower Yuba. In the fall and winter, I start concentrating on Steelhead. When spring rolls around, it's time to fish for American Shad.
One of my friends has found a use for his switch rod. He uses it to fish for Smallmouth Bass on something that is slightly larger than a small stream (NF American River). There are some areas that have some large pools that he likes to work streamers into. Also there are some pocket waters that he nymphs.
