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.

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!

    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.

    • Coyle for Donato and a 5th, not as bad as nino for rask because at least donato has some potential to be a better goal scorer but overall yikes, not thrilled with Fentons bigger trades so far, the smaller ones have been good but that is the problem. Either way all signs point toward a rebuild of some kind.
    • It's a prairie zone.  We're right on the northern edge of the hills, Just north of I90 near Sturgis.
    • Wow, Bobber! You resurrected an oldie from the good old days, here!    I STILL haven't tried this yet - although I have bought a LOT of Prague Powder between then and now.😁   I think any roast wold work but you might get a pretty fatty result with chuck.  If you're looking to make corned beef & cabbage for St.Patty's Day and eat it more like a pot roast - a little extra fat might not be bad. But if you're looking to make your own lunch meat or eat it cold, I think chuck would get a little greasy in your mouth.  Corned beef is traditionally made with brisket.   Maybe I'll give this a go - it's almost that magical time of the year - that sweet spot between youth hockey season and youth baseball season when I get to do what I want... sometimes.
