getting stream segments from different layers to align

I have attributes in my SWIMS stream layer that I want to get transferred to the more spatially accurate NHD stream layer. The currently dont line up well at all, so my plan was to get them to align (somehow) and then do an intersect and join based on the new common attributes.

Does this seem like the best method, and if so, how do I get the two stream layers to align?

P.S. Im doing this statewide, so I cant manually use the new trace function in 10.

Thanks, Mike
