I moved here from New Hampshire a couple years ago and have been pretty much disappointed finding good trout water. There are some rivers in Wisconsin that hold trout. The Black Earth is one I've had a bit of success on for 10 inch trout. I have heard discussion on this board about a couple streams in Indiana but haven't tried them myself.
The Fishin Fatman board advertises steelhead and salmon runs on the Root River in Wi.
I have set trout aside except for an annual trip to Missouri. The DNR stocks a couple of local lakes with trout a few times a summer but the cheese dunkers line up elbow to elbow and beat the water to a froth until they've killed every fish, (usually in a few days). The water won't support a trout fishery so it's just put n' take fishing.
It's a lot of fun to fish for bluegill, crappie, and bass with your flyrod and they're in virtually every body of water around, down to tiny local retention ponds. I have found luring a four pound bass to hit a topwater popper is as challenging as getting trout to take a royal coachman and a lot more accessible.
Get out there and have fun with your long rod, just be prepared for a lot of curiosity since most guys you meet have never seen one.
Of all my life's activities, flyfishing is the only one I can do badly and still have a good time.
