Trout fishing streams question.

I am down around Cannon Falls, I have never fished for trout before. I don't understand the rules, some places you can fish all year, some are open before others. If I wanted to fish the Cannon or Vermillion, when is it legal to do so?

It's all on the DNR website.  Get out your map and check it out.

Or you could take advice from strangers on the internet.

Or you could hire a guide.

Yeah I did read before I posted, makes no sense to me. So I asked my mom and she couldn't understand it either. I was hoping I could try out my new flyrod, but I guess I will have wait til I see my dad again. Thanks anyway

Welcome to the site Wass, as I read, and if I understand the regulations correctly, you may fish for stream trout, but you must release them within the stated counites and during the stated time period. If you have more specific questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to call the MN DNR Fisheries office in Lanesboro, MN at 507-467-2442, the personnel that work there have great insight on where a great place to try that flyrod out would be. Hope you Catch, Photo, and Release a good one!

Thanks for the info sir. My dad always says you need to take a lawyer fishing to understand the rules.

I will call the number and find out answers to my questions. 

Thanks again, maybe I can post a pic of a trout if, I mean when I catch one.
