The dam in Morristown is a good place for a variety of species but mainly bullheads. Is always better when the water is flowing nice and steady. For the smallies your probly gonna want to head up near Cannons falls and that area because the river is better laid out for smallmouth.

There's a real nice spot just off of Hwy 52 heading south right before the Cannon Falls exit. Take that exit, take a right,and then another immediate right. Follow that road down about 1/4 mile, and then take a right on the frontage road that butts right against Hwy 52 (you'll be headed north at that point). If the water isn't too high, there are a couple of really nice smallmouth spots where we've caught a few walleyes and saugers as well. There is also a lot of opportunity to explore the river either up or down stream. If you fly fish, it's prime territory right in there.

It's really a beautiful spot to spend the whole day fishing and exploring. Not too bad a place for kids, either, if the water isn't too high.

      I can speak for Ludlows and have nothing but high praise. Mark, Sally, Paul and Kelly run a top notch resort. June to early September they are usually about Max capacity each week. Outside of the peak season weekend use is still relativity high. They don't have a restaurant on site but will provide(cooked in house) high end meals for some large cooperate groups that come in. They aren't struggling and the service won't be beat anywhere on Vermillion.

      hope you all are paying close attention to the meandered water issue at bay here in SD. Sounds like some landowners in Mn are taking notes.    Its a difficult subject and I and can see both sides from private and public perspectives.

      Now that the ice is gone, what do people fish for before the walleye opener? Any reports?
