Depends on river size, casting distance and wind conditions. My trout rod is medium (DSII)>? Well, it feels medium. I hate fast action trout rods for short distance presentation. I do enjoy fast rods for nymphing though. I also like really fast action single hand steelhead rods. Medium/fast spey rods.

I agree with IveofIone with trout rods though. I have tried all sorts and settled with IM6 and graphite II (slow/medium). I would fish even slower rods at certain times when accuracy is crucial and presentation is dire. It is nice to slow things down when you are trying to cast a fly accross 6 lanes of current accross the river and to an overhanging hole in the brush the size of a frizbee from 50' away.
