Tips on where to fish the V

Recommended Posts

Guest

Greetings, all.

I'm going to pick up trout fishing again after about 15 years...I inherited my fathers old equipment, and wanted to hit the Vermillion this weekend to see what I could scare up. Any advice as to where to begin?

One of the locals at a fly shop near my old residence in St. Paul mentioned that the river near Rushing River park was a good bet....any other advice?

Thanks in advance!

I've fished the V and found there to be very little fish in it. You will see some posts on here of people catching large trout but that is generally at the beginning of the season. This river get way to much pressure on it. If you want a quality trout fishing experience fish the Mid branch of the White Water south of Elba and south of the Lazy D campground. Lots of riffles and lots of pools with lots of fish. I drive from Bloomington and it takes me about and hour and 45 minutes I always catch fish and the scenery is great.

Fishing in the park is still good. I hear that people are still seeing and catching some trout there.

I'm not sure if the Vermillion got any of that rain we just got? If it did if got to be unfishable for the next day or two.

If it did get any of that rain the trout may be hard to catch. They've most likly been eating worm until they couldn't eat no more.

I'd look for them sitting in the holes and really sluggish from all the worms they have just eaten.

Well, I'm really looking more to practice my casting more than anything. Of course, if I happened to bump in to a Brownie that wouldn't mind putting up a fight on ny line, that would be good, too...

I may head down on Wed. with my gear and my camera (catch and release, always!).

Tracer I was fishing it last Sat. it didn't get any rain the river is really low and clear. The main problem your going to be faced with is that the vegitation around the river is up to your neck and I'm 5'11".
I saw a few fish rising some large, more than I've ever seen.
I mainly fly fish and a funny thing happened I caught a sunfish. Fishing still was slow didn't catch any trout but seen plenty. Had a really big one on homemade nymph, broke my line. Oh well, I'll get him this weekend (I hope).
You may end up standing in the river to do any fly casting, It really all depends on were you go.
Good luck.
