I was just wondering what everyone's favorite place to fish outside Colorado was.  I enjoy going to the BWCA (boundry waters canoe area) in Minnesota.  Its like taking a trip back in time everytime I go, no motorized boats allowed canoes only.  Very few people to run into tons of wildlife and GREAT FISHING.

My favorite place outside Aberdeen, South Dakota. I grew up fishing in Aberdeen and some of the best times I have are with my dad, brothers and kids fishing around there.

I particulary like Richmond Lake, it has a nice variety of fish including walleye, northerns, crappie, perch, bullhead, catfish and bluegills. If one species is not biting another is. We have a place where it is not uncommon to catch 1 pound bluegill and if you are using a crappie rig its not uncommon to catch doubles of bluegill (I have never caught double 1 pound bluegills, but wouldn't that be nice?)

We also like to fish the James River (Called "the Jim" by everybody who grew up there). Its great for northerns and walleyes especially in the spring.

Every summer we try to go back for a week or so and take the kids fishing there. I think its their favorite lake too.
