Has anybody had any luck fishing the canon river around northfield?

Hey Harty, I have never personally fished it, but a guy "MNSportsman" posted several spot in that area, I'll look to see if I can find that info.

Also there was an article in the startrib in early april about trout up in the vermillion river. Might be worth a shot.

Thanks for the reply, I have fished on the vermillion and a stream right west of Northfield. Caught some rainbow and brooks, nothing with any size. Just looking for a place to drop the line. Any info would be great.

Here is that post, Thanks MNSportsman.

After looking at your location in your profile, I'll give you a few that are close & you can work your way downstate. Some may not be "designated" trout waters on the map, but I assure you there are trout in each one I list, because I've fished them personally.
Some are stocked.But some also contain some "red-bellies".(what I call stocked trout that have gone native(survived a season to eat native foods, hence changing the inside belly/ribcages' meat darker.)
So , here are a few:

The Vermillion river.Try West of Farmington for sure, but downstream towards Empire & Hasting should hold some.

Trout brook from Miesville area to Big Cannon river.

Pine creek from HWY 52 area to Big Cannon.

The Cannon river downstream from the Lake Byllesby bridge.(harder fishing...Lower population but bigger fish)

The Little Cannon river from the Kenyon/Sogn area to Cannon Falls.(Little & Big Cannon meet there).<One of my favorites

There are more, but these are ones I didn't see on the S.E.Mn Trout streams map, & are fairly close to you. Besides... I'm beginning to get a little worried about the "word" getting out.Please be prudent about these...Shhhhh.... Please make sure to do some C&R please. I want my grandchildrens' children to be able to fish these waters too!

Remember, there are places to find trout where you wouldn't think they'd be. Many Sportsmans clubs used to stock streams years ago & their stocking locations aren't always made public.Flooding over the years has also created some fishable waters inadvertantly.(Big Cannon for example)
It also lets you do some exploring too. (please get permission if needed...

Welcome & Good Luck!
See ya out there!

Good Luck & Watch your bobber!

    • Some radio's can be really power hungry. I'd just use a simple bluetooth speaker or some sort of standalone boom box of sorts. If your lights are not already switch them over to LED. Both of these are easily done to reduce current draw. If you search amazon you can also buy and install PWM led dimmers on all your lights, only turn them up as bright as needed. The great thing about PWM is it reduces your current draw unlike resistor based dimmers of past. Lastly I would take an actual reading at the battery when your alarm goes off. You may have a bad Co/lp alarm or the following issues that increase resistance to your alarm in turn dropping the voltage it sees: poor connections, too small of gauge wiring, excessive wire length.
    • There's nothing amusing, or even confusing as to why it happens.  It would be more confusing if outdoorsmen didn't overharvest.  Look no further than Harden's Tragedy of the Commons.       There's a near perfect correlation with the amount of free public resources and the inferior quality of those resources.  This is why reservations are largely wilderness ghettos.  It's why Red Lake collapsed.  The student loan bubble.  This is also why urban ghettos are looted every time there is a riot.  Subsidized housing, drinking water, livestock farming etc.     When people aren't responsible for the effects their actions have on the system they're impacting, those systems will fail.  But hey, keep helping the state buy up all the land and monopolize the lakes.  Maybe someday enough of that insanity will yield a different result.  
    • First off, you need to figure out you amp loading.... how many amps does your furnace take, lights, radio etc. and how long do they run. That should give you your amp hr rating. Then match your battery requirement up with the right amount of amp hours.  Not all batteries are created equal based on size. For example, a group 27 can range from 60-100 amp hrs.    Here is a good site for calculating battery requirements https://www.batterystuff.com/kb/tools/calculator-sizing-a-battery-to-a-load.html  
    • Hey it's my Anniversary old man!   2001 I may not have even been Internet born then? 😄
    • I think Priefer has dirt on the wilfs. That guy should have been fired years ago
    • Gave the Lakemaster chip to my son, he has the E-trex 30x using it in the BWCA as it runs on AA batteries. Uses BaseCamp to create BWCA routes.
    • I learned how to encrypt all digital media near my fishin’ holes.  Hopefully that explains it. 😁
    • I had some other pictures of Laker fishing that for some reason just wouldn't post. You can see one right at the bottom of the last picture?  J's fish.bmp.
    • I can only say I think you are a pretty straight up guy and it wasn't your post that I was talking about at all. I was just commenting on the way these discussions generally go and if I would have made the second paragraph in a new post the forum would have merged them automatically anyway so I just used this approach.
