Vermillion River

3 posts in this topic

Has anyone fished the vermillion river before? I gave it a quick try today after church, but it was hot and sunny and high noon, not exactly prime trout time. Brush was pretty bad also, so I was thinking about maybe hitting it during the fall catch and release season after all plants and tall grass die down, or maybe just wait until next spring. Just curious if anyone has had success here or not?

Used to be pretty legit but the last 5 years or so have seemed pretty down. The big pike are there though.  I seen a breeding pair last year and the male was about 24 inches and big momma was pushing 40. Miss Piggy and Kermit. It was a fun watch for about 5 minutes. I've seen and hooked into some other biggins as well.  There rainbows but good luck finding size. Also dont think you'll get into Browns like over in WI. Nothing close to that.

 

Well worth it though if you battled one of those 40 plus inch Pike on that little stream.  Thats a feat.

That's the struggle I have...hard to come here when the streams I go to in Wisconsin are so good. The one other time I came here, last year, with exactly the same weather and water conditions, I hooked into a brown trout that was well over 20 inches. Unfortunately it got off after just a few seconds. I did see that starting this year, they are stocking way more rainbows in there.
