Re: Newbie in West Michigan
Welcome to the forum. I get pretty good advice on here so hopefully you will gain from others as well.
I am on the east side of MI and love to hit the northern streams.
I too am heading west in Aug/Sept. Not quite as long but I'll be there nonthe less.
I'd say of the way out there you can hit sooo many of the greatest trouts waters in the US. Between Montana, Wyoming, Colorado and Idaho you are hitting the best areas. I a doing a a Yellowstone/Grand Tetons type trip and I plan on hitting the Henrys Fork in Idaho as well.
good luck planning out your trip. Take and post lots of pictures. travel safe.
