Others with experience will be able to give you more detailed information. Being an Okie myself, may I suggest going Northwest! Less population and Mountains Purple Majesty on a grand scale.

Well, your about 12-16 hours to the Great Lakes and about 21-25 to the Clearwater River in Idaho.

+1, closest is probably fishing Lake Michigan tribs for planted steelhead.

We have no set plans just looking into it. We don't know what time of year or where to go.

Indiana or Wisconsin, I guess. But that Idaho trip would be worth the extra hours, IMO.

Good call... mainly because of the setting, and the drive would likely take you guys within striking distance of so many other coldwater destination rivers. Be a shame to drive that far in that direction and not tap Yellowstone (for example).
