I will be in Bayfield July 24 - 30 related to wedding / family reunion. Would love to pack the gear for fly fishing if I thought any chance of some. I live in SE Minnesota so familiar with small, cold, spring filled creeks. Would love to learn enough in the next couple of weeks to help me decide whether to take the gear along.

Very close to Bayfield you might try the Little Sioux. I caught my first trout there, about a 4-incher when I was probably about 15. I don't remember anything else about it, but I think it has some resident fish. Most of the other creeks in the area should have something, usually small rainbows / baby steelhead. Toward central Bayfield County there are tons of streams to try for browns & brookies. If you like poking around in small creeks and catching small fish in pretty settings, that's a nice area.
