You can safely say that there are no trout streams anywhere close to Williston. You're moving there for the money, but be prepared to give up any sense of recreation...

There is some warmwater fishing in/around Williston, though even that's fairly limited. The Missouri's hard to fish without a boat, and the Little Muddy is so crowded at the few access points, it'd be pretty hard to cast a fly. There are a few lakes around with bass/pike/perch. I guess they put rainbows in Sather Lake (about an hour S of Williston).

Technically, there are some trout below Ft Peck dam; that's only about 2.5 hours away, but it's not exactly what I'd call a "trout stream." The closet real trout water would be the Bighorn, and that's about 4.5 hours away.

Who would you be going to work for?
