DMG

When a monster summoning spell is cast, consult the tables below to ascertain what sort of creature appears.
Each table is presented according to the level of the spell.
If the summoner is evil, the monster in parentheses may be used.

Remember that it is always within your purview to not only select what monster is summoned but to appoint the numbers as well,
where applicable.
Thus you may select to have rats come to a first level summoning,
but because they are relatively weak you might also allow a maximum number to appear.
The major drawback to personal selection is that players might view it as personal bias on the part of the DM - whether pro or con.
It is quite obvious that there ore superior and inferior monsters on each list,
and as a general rule it might be better to allow random selection sans "interference from the gods".

When a monster summoning spell is cast while upon a body of water or underwater,
use the following tables to ascertain what sort of creature appears.
Note that there are separate tables for fresh and salt water.
