I would go to Alaska. Mainly because of the opportunity to catch various species of fish.

Utah or the Sierra's. The numbers you can catch on the Green are staggering and the sizes of the fish you can catch in the Sierra's are awesome!

Since I'm already here I would like to be able to fly over to the Iliamna Lake and Bristol Bay tributary rivers. Or maybe down south to the Yakutat area for some really good steelhead but if you want to go there you better get on your way.

I have to agree with thenextlevel and Ard: Alaska, chasing huge rainbows and salmon in the Bristol Bay streams or chasing monster sized steelies in Yakutat, or maybe one of those ultra expensive fly fishing lodges in Bristol Bay that flies out to a different stream everyday.

Troutbum,

It has been over 20 years but if you choose the U.P. I strongly recommend the Two Hearted River, Fox, and Tahquamenon Rivers. Different and beautiful.

Thumbs up Re: If you could go fishing for a week anywhere

I'd have to say the " Rapid River " in Maine for Monster Brookies.......they average 4 to 8 lbs. and are very colorful fish! Also its a very scenic river! But my second choice would be the " Green River " Wyoming / Utah

That's a different kind of intro Papabear,

Nice fish, welcome to the group. Did you just join or have you been around and just not posting? What did that fish grab to get himself into a situation like that?

P.S. I just checked, you are our newest member you will enjoy the people here.
