Default Chicago Bound - Where's the Fish?

I'll be in Chicago the last week of June, visiting family, but will have some time to slip away and fish a weekday or two. Any suggestions for trout or smallmouth within a reasonable day-trip distance of the city?

THANKS for any suggestions.

Most Chicago-types seem to hop across the big lake to Michigan!

Another option would be Madison area. About 2.5 hours from western suburbs.

THANKS for the early returns.

And I guess I should add walleye into my potential targets, right?

2 hours due west of madison and you are in the Driftless Area and every trickle over 12 inches has trout in it.
