Same boat here in Indiana as far as the trout fishing is concerned but three hours to my north I can get into some. But I never liked the northern part of the state. Too crowded for me. Besides I can get to the mountains of KY in 2/1/2 hours and I'd just as soon be in some mountains rather than the flat land up north.
