      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Vermilion River, Farmington area

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone has been down to the Vermilion River in the Farmington area? I'm kinda new to fly fishing and haven't fished that much for trout. Curious about the river level, if its walkable or shore fishing only in that stretch? Any information about the fishing there would be great. Thanks.

The area around Farmington is not that good for fly fishing there are not that many open areas to cast.

Most guy's I run into are iether wishing with worms or throwing spinners.

i live right by the vermillion. the best time to fish is on opener. right after they stock them you can chase schools of 30 fish or more! the things were quite a pest while i was targeting carp, so i brought my flyrod one day, and i have a new passion.

this time of year is really tough beacuse most of the trout are spread out and tough to find. Also, this time of year the vegetation is way over-grown and you have no room to even roll cast. i would suggest pike or carp fishing this time of year

If you are new to fly fishing I don't think the Vermillion is a good place to practice. There are trout but they are far and few between and you need to know where the good areas are. Many people give up on this river because they get skunked more times than they catch fish. Plus it is tough going. Quicksand mud, log jams, thick brush. It's not for the faint hearted.

I suggest trying some of the more classic trout streams in SE:

MN trout stream maps

Whitewater State Park or Hay Creek (pasture section) would be excellent places to start.

    • Where's the best place to buy a Honda 2000i generator. I know it's a factory set price for the most part but remembered in the past some local "mom and pops" had them a bit cheaper. Would prefer to give my business to a small business anyway.  I'm in the south metro if that matters at all, but willing to drive.
    • Bear, in real life, i am pretty much the same. Thank you for such an interest in me. Lol. Dave crying but called me a Dick. Typical sugar slave, cannot have a clear perception of reality. Good job bud, but that thick skin is hardened fascia from having poor ROM from an inability to move properly over the course of your life.   Roony so bad wants me to give him some attention. Ok little buddy, all you got is Dr roids comments or you got something better to say?  Please give me your opinion of treadmills or be a little ankle bitter some more.
    • maybe a chick.  we had one here for a couple weeks.   
    • Minn Kota  55 Riptide with foot pedal and hand held remote so when you first connect the battery with out the foot pedal connected or any of the control cables connected, the shaft will begin turning to the right. with foot pedal and wireless remote cables connected the unit stops turning but does not respond to the left or right control. It will go forward. it was purchased used and worked fine in April. In July i went to use it and it acted as I described above. I have read several of the forums but did not see the exact same symptoms. help please. thanks in advance
