Default Cosmopolitan vacation with fishing

My wife and I usually take about one big vacation per year. We seem to alternate between "culture" type vacations (cities, museums, architecture) and "nature" type vacations (houseboating, camping or resort).
2018 may be a "culture" vacation, but I've still got the fishing itch, especially freshwater/trout. My wife has no interest in fishing.
Can you recommend a city/culture vacation that would have stream fishing really close nearby, perhaps in the city itself, for an afternoon of guided fishing?
It can be stateside, or international.

London - fly fishing for trout in reservoirs or pike on the river Thames or if you want a whole day fishing trout south and west of London within about 90-120 mins.

Depending on how far you are willing to travel from the city, what about New York? lots of places in pa, nj, ct, upstate ny, Long Island and nj shore if you want salt, that's all within 1.5 to 3 hours from Manhattan. My wife and daughters went to the nutcracker ballet today while I was daydreaming of my day trip to central pa on Monday.

I'm not sure this would qualify as culture from the city angle, but how about Durango, CO? Using that as your base, within a few hours drive you have Mesa Verde, Chaco Canyon, and Bandelier, all world-renowned Indian ruins and cliff dwellings. Not far from Bandelier one also has Los Alamos, which ushered in the atomic age.

From a fishing angle, in or close to Durango is the Animas and San Juan, and many small streams within the area. Time of year is important based on run-off expectations.

Though there are many towns to use as your base in that area, Durango has the best restaurants, bars, attractions, and scenery, and offers a piece of the old West in its downtown hotels, all within walking distance of the aforementioned options. There is also the narrow-gauge railroad that runs between Durango and Silverton, for a spectacular day.

Grew up in Vancouver, you would have lots of options for fishing as well it you spent 1 or 2 days visiting Victoria and the Island. PM me if you want more info.

Nemacolin Resort in Pennsylvania, in the middle of nowhere but the resort offers guided fly trips, five star restaurant, cigar and wine tastings, multimillion dollar art and car collection to tour and purchase from. Also 2 Frank Lloyd Wright homes are near the property including Fallingwater. The resort also has a world class spa, shooting lodge, a jeep 4x4 course and a private zoo. My wife's old boss held a Christmas party there a few years ago. Love to go back but I'd prefer to go for free again☺
