If we're talking strickly inland waters, which both Montana and Idaho waters qualify as, Montana is hard to beat, of course! Nevertheless, I've sure seen a bunch of Montana plates hauling boats behind, parked along the Clearwater when the steelhead are in!

Absolutely no good trout fishing here in Coulee Country.

I've heard if you go across the river to Minnesota the fishing can be good.

Yeah its a tail water I know not as sexy as Montana or Idaho

Its centraly located plus its cheep.

You can catch the following in the same day

Browns

Cutthroats

Brookies

Rainbows

The current world record for a brown trout (40 pounds, 4 ounces) was set in May, 1992, on the Little Red River, 29 miles of which had become suitable trout habitat with the completion of the Greers Ferry Dam in the early 1960s.

"Best freshwater trout fishing" means a lot of things to a lot of people. Some folks would judge that answer by tailwater/freestone, isolated/crowded, native/wild/stockers, top water/bottom dragging, lotic/lentic, scenic/blah, challenging/body count, remote/convenient, famous/secret, floatable/wadeable, etc, etc, etc.

That was my thought. What defines "best"? Pretty personal.

Anyway, interesting question.... sort of like "Which state in Mexico has the best hamburgers?"  :<img src=:'>  hehehe

Hey Brad......where do you find Brookies in Arkansas? I'd never heard that before. Might have to give that a shot when I'm back there in

April.

Southern Missouri tail waters and spring creeks aren't too shabby either for rainbow and brown trout.

Actually, Iowa has the best trout fishing in the Upper Midwest -- and you don't have to worry about being outsmarted by wild trout.

to do the slam in the same day from the White river north fork and the Spring AGaF have been stocking them there for a few years, I have buddies that have caught them on the little Red River.

Now im young and not well traveled but I believe we have a very diverse fishery here in New York

- Tributary fishing for huge lake run (Both lakes Ontario and Erie) browns and steelhead (not to mention Chinook and coho Salmon). Some streams such as teh salmon river even see runs of summer sleelies and atlantic salmon.

- The Legendary Catskill streams.

- A large variety of Southern Tier and Western NY Wild trout streams (plus a ton of stocky streams for those inclined)

- Finger Lakes and Tribs for lake run large rainbows, browns and atlantic salmon.

-Adirondack Wilderness... Endless brookie streams and backcountry ponds, lake fishing for lakers, browns , rainbows, splake and brookies, miles apon miles of trout streams and rivers(Rainbows Browns and Brookies)
