I was born and raised in Michigan. I have hooked trout in every county in the state where they exist. It is home to some of the greatest trout fishing area in the country. Although its not as scenic as many of the western states, it does offer some great fishing. There are a lot of tucked away small streams where you can fish for days without seeing another person. I spend most of my summers fishing in Idaho, but I do miss sitting in a Michigan cedar swamp on a small stream waiting for the trout to start rising.
