Do you need to work? Or just retire and fish? Any other activities you like? I've lived in NM for 40 years. I know a thing or two, because I've seen a thing or two.

"I find Medford to be a bit of a depressed city."

Anything but 'depressed.' Would I live in Medford? No but the surrounding communities (I'm in what's called White City-just north .. but it isn't). Lots of lake fishing, the Rogue River and my fav. for trout is the Rogue Head waters above Lost Creek lake.

Tonne of easy access, very little of it would require a 4x4, as the road runs right along the river. Easy access to the Coastal streams but it will be a 4 hour drive so not a 'day trip.'

As a last note, if you have 'medical issues' the Medford area is your place of choice. Several major (like really MAJOR) Hospitals in the immediate area, emergency service is top end .... I've had the opportunity to test that in December. I'm still paying off my portion of the $21,000 plus bill.

I hadn't finished the 911 calls when fellows were coming in the front door!

Idaho can locate you more centrally to everywhere in the NW. But there are no fish here.
Also, Or-e-gon state parks have it all over I-D-ho.
Look at their Yurts and reserve ahead.

No, retired. Can live anywhere. I like Taos but also Silver City. Has to have some mountains. Maybe south of Durango. Need public land to romp around.
Oregon also on short list- steelhead, etc.

Not as much fishing in the Silver City area.

Taos is nice, you have access to several small streams, and then there is the Rio Grande. If you're a mountain goat, you can get to some pretty good fishing. The more accessible fishing along the Rio Grande is on or off, it seems.

The Four Corners area (northwest New Mexico/southwest Colorado) offers a lot of jumping off points. In a few hours or less, you can get to all kinds of well-known fishing: San Juan, Dolores, Animas, Rio Grande in CO, Chama, etc.

I'll PM you a specific thought.
