The first thing to consider is how flit you are and how willing to do some bushwhacking. If you don't want to do any of that, you must find a stream with easy road and trail access. The second is whether you want to only fish public water. Asking permission from an owner can lead to a killer find and fish that have never seen flies. Once you consider these get on google maps or earth and start on a street map rather then satellite. look within a 15 mile radius of your home for a thin blue line that fits your requirements and appears to be long enough to hold breeding trout populations.
