How many times do you goto other states to fish per year? Why? Does anyone go out of state to ice fish? I just moved to WY at the 1st of the year and fishing here is pretty good.. Was just a random thought....

I go to southdakota about twice a year because the fishing is far superior to Colorado. I also go to wyo to fish the rivers maybe twice a year also to fish n camp with my dad. And then theres the Nebraska trip for cats n eyes for a fun weekend.

Iam in Nebraska 2 weekends a month to fish. Less crowded, big water. I'm bored with trout. Big mac. Red willow. Enders. I-80 sand pits. Iam also tired of the smorgasbord of species that are in our lakes.

Trout fishing here is very good, some yrs better than others IMO. This yr? Not so much, lots of small ones (400 or so ) with very few what I call big fish (over 17 inches). Why? IMO not enough water in the rivers, little snow and zero spring/early summer rain. Or maybe I suck this yr?
That being said, in general I go to SD, Mn, and Wisc to fish. The variety is what I go for. In most lakes a guy can fish for eyes, panfish, pike, smb, lmb etc. I see pictures of eyes and pike and bass on this site and I wonder is this all there is. This is nothing against Co, it is what it is. Good to great trout and not much else.
By the way, I am retired so I fish a lot. Many trips in and outstate plus lots of local excursions.
