Your first post? Mine too!
Anyway, in reply to your post about Trout in Ohio. I just started fly fishing here about 2 months ago. The wife and I just recently moved here (Cincinnati) and just last week took our first vacation in 4 years. Part of that vacation was a day trip into Indiana. I live down here in Anderson township so it is a bit more than the 30 minutes you mentioned (internet says 35 miles fron Cincinnati), but Brookville Lake releases Trout below their damn. I guess it is referred to as a Trout Fishery. There are 2 parking access areas for anglers before the park entrance. I'm really looking forward to trying it out here real soon. We had a restless 2yr old the day we drove out so I couldn't try it then.
My wife works in Sharonville and has 2 co-workers who commute from Indiana. One is a big fisherman. He claims the Trout fishing is real good there at Brookville. Of course he is a spin caster. I can't say much, he still knows more on the subject than me
