It's depressing? You should be excited as hell. You've got a whole new state to explore--one with an ocean, numerous lakes, crazy huge whitewater rivers, little placid trickles in the desert, enormous reservoirs, small ponds, and on and on and on. Is it different than WI? Damn skippy. You've got so much angling variety in this state it's silly. Not sure I see the problem. Your small stream options will open up considerably in a matter of weeks.
