Default What planned for the upcoming season?

So what's everyone have planned for this years fishing season? Any special trips, once in a lifetime kind of thing? Or maybe just a annual trek to your favorite spot? A new rod you just can't wait to try out?
I don't have anything special planned except to hopefully get out on the water more often this year. Many streams I haven't hit around here. One of the benefits of the Driftless I guess.
Not looking for anyone's honey hole, I'm just trying to find something to help with the "cabin fever". Not very good at tying and have been banned from using the dining room table as a
Tying bench and the spot I have deemed the spot to make into a station is currently over cluttered with gold clubs, fishing poles and a broken computer lol.

Plan A is get my 'health' back under control; this past 6 months have been 'interesting.' Second thing is to actually rig up that new Boo spey rod and see how she works.

Hoping to finally get to the Driftless Area. Other than that, the northern Michigan rivers.

The plan is to become very accustom to the following streams.

Blue.
South Platte.
Colorado River.
Ark.
Eagle.
Williams Fork.
.....but not limited to....

After I take my daughter to Auburn in Aug., I am going to take a couple of 3 weeks or so.......and retrace some of my favorite water and trips.

Big snook under the dock lights on Siesta Key.
At least two nights in the B/C, fishing in the GSMNP.
First light, walking the beach at Smiths Point.

Luckily, I will be flexible enough this year to pull it off.

My shiny new canoe should show up tomorrow. Tons of small farm ponds in the area where the canoe will allow me to fish much more effectively. May take it out to some other parts of the state, where there are lots of fisheries in shallower natural ponds with very weedy shores (not bank fishable) and be able to do some fishing in those places that should be a blast. Probably won't take more than one or two trips more than 100 miles away this year, though that's subject to change. There are enough little ponds around here with good bass and bluegill fishing to keep me plenty busy.

Also looking to canoe the unchannelized stretch of the Missouri from Yankton, SD to Ponca, NE sometime during the year. Not sure how much fishing I will get done on that trip, but surely at least some.

My sons and I decided to fish in all 12 months this year. Living in Idaho, that's not always easy. So far, so good.
We wade, float, and boat, and have a lot of good water to fish. We'll hit lakes, small creeks, and major rivers, and I'm looking forward to lots of time on the water.

Yellowstone again (hopefully), Gunnison, CO in late August, and I want to do more alpine stillwater for trout this year.

Now I have to get my butt back to the tying bench.

Hitting a high mountain lake every weekend this summer, one of which has goldens. Others with graying along with cutts, rainbows, big whitefish etc. Spending some evenings on the Jarbidge river as well. If I have time I will squeeze in some warm water action.
