If you're catching green sunfish or other warm-water species, is it a good bet that there are no trout in that section of the stream? Most of my experience has been in the smokeys - totally different than what I've seen here.

Both can survive in the same environment.

I've caught bluegills, perch, rockbass, and smallmouth in the Little Manistee River.

Plenty of times where I've caught trout in the same location with these species.

Depends on the stream. Like Diz said, you can catch other fish, but still have some trout around.

The first place I'd start is here:

Enter in the county and stream you're fishing and see if it's ever or still does get any plants of trout. Since you're posting in the SW forum and talking about catching warm water species, then I'd venture a guess that you're in a marginal stream and if it does have any trout, they'd be some that were planted. For time frame, I'd go back 10 years and just see if at anytime in that 10 years, they've planted browns or rainbows.

I've seen a LOT of Pike in the Little Man when Steelhead were spawning. They usually spawn around the same time. On the other hand, I wouldn't expect to find Rainbow Trout in Fletcher's Pond, but there are a ton of Pike.
