Summer daydreaming...

Well, its frozen in MN right now but I'm thinking about warm days and swinging for steelhead...

A question: Where would you all recommend for some summer steelheading opportunities in June - August? Lower 48, probably. Anyplace where a mellow, DIY trip (maybe a day or two of guiding, but not a lodge... think budget) might be possible. Reasonable public access and a reasonable (this is steelheading after all...) chance at finding a couple of fish?

PM me if you'd prefer.

Kind of thinking out loud... I know Sept-November are better, but my schedule is easier to deal with in the actual summer.

Anyway, thanks gang.

Deschutes in OR and SW WA rivers come first to mind. Then again I live in WA. Depending on water levels, I'd fish the EF Lewis, Kalama, and Cowlitz in the June - August timeframe. I know the Deschutes is good then, but it's just too hot for me in July and Aug.
