Trout Fishing Out West versus Southeast

I'm a native Georgian with lots of fishing
experience in the N. Ga. mountains. I just
returned from a trip to the Absaroka-Beartooth
Wilderness in Montana where I caught fifteen
nice Cutthroats (two 16 inchers) and eleven
Brookies averaging 10 to 12 inches. It was a
blast and pretty much replicates the success
I always seem to have in trout trips out west.

However, my point is this: Georgia has some of the
toughest and most rewarding fishing in the world -
if you can catch trout here in Georgia, you can catch
them even better out west. There are big fish here
and there, and the thrill of catching big ones doesn't
change no matter where you are, but it is easier to
catch fish out west. Period. If you want a challenge,
go to North Georgia. If you want to catch tons of fish,
virtually guaranteed, go to Montana, Idaho, or Wyoming.

Any thoughts from the NGTO enthusiasts (including the
ubiquitous G.R. Wilt)?
