Hike-in fly fishing

I just reread Rich Osthoff's 'Fly Fishing in Rocky Mountain Backcountry' and have a yen to try something similar. A couple questions pop-up:
Does anybody have a favorite hike-in destination in new England? I've done the Oswegatchie - Five Ponds area (canoe upstream and hike), Megalloway, Parmechene lake tribs (day hikes from camp), Allagash and St John's (canoe). It'd be fun to hear of another route, preferably with a 15+ mile hike-only access into fishable waters.

How viable is the fishery Osthoff talks about nowadays? The book is 10 years old, and much might have changed. Has anyone done a hike-in trip to the Winds or any of the regions he talks about?

Thanks in advance.
