Where are my best bets? I'm guessing that there's next to no where in RI and MA, but as for Souther New Hampshire, I figure there should be some servicable trout water. I'm looking for somewhere with no more than a 3 hour drive from south east mass, half way between providence and boston. Any suggestions?

Are you restricting yourself to rivers and streams? Check the states websites!

Right near you - Blackstone, Taunton, Palmer...Hell, I can't remember all of them - you're surrounded by decent trout water right where you are! Ipswich and Parker Rivers here on the North Shore, in three hours you can make it to the Deerfield or Westfield Rivers in Mass, and I bet if you look at the DFWELE website you'll find a bunch of places right here you can enjoy- the Squannacook, the Nissitissit, Concord and Sudbury, Wachusett Reservoir, Quabbin - look around - don't negate some of the pond fishing if you're looking for some broodstock females and such.

Farmington River in CT; Connecticut River (MA, NH, CT) - Merrimack NH, MA), Winnipesaukee, Contoocook and others in NH - take a look at the NH Fish and Game website - some great areas in the southern tier of NH. And not to leave out Rhode Island, but again, check the website- I know a guy who can't say enough about places down there - fishes the Swansea in RI, but the Swansea starts in Mass, so....
