I am a beginner who just started fishing a few weeks ago, specifically targeting trout. My plan is to renew my license next year so I can start targeting steelhead and salmon in 2021. That is to say, I don't want to pay to upgrade my license to start targeting those fish now. Besides fishing lakes and ponds for trout, what species can I target through the end of the year? Do bass and crappie stay active as it gets colder? In my mind they are "summer" fish.
