There are some trout up at Brookville if you don't mind more or less urban fishing in a tailwater. They are not wild but there are more than a few hold overs. I've pulled a couple 19+" browns out of there. Size 20 and smaller midges and hoppers in the summer. Pretty standard tail water stuff.
You are so right though, Northern Kentucky is a far way off from classic trout water, but our bass, bluegill and crappie will grow on you.
With all the snow we got today, fishing seems like a long way off.

I'm actually closer now to the Smokies than I am my WV brookie streams, so if anyone wants to hook up for a weekend trip to either drop me a line.
