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.

      @Pigmeat I’d agree it’s most likely shot.  Is it more than 3 years old?   Go lithium if you can on the replacement, you won’t regret it.
    • Wanderer
      Yah, the LX 3’s had a flaw that was common but easily corrected if the owner took a little effort and sent it back.  The 1’s and 5’s have been pretty bullet proof.

      You can park along Minnetonka Blvd.  The enforcement is from May1 to October 1. Just watch for the signs. Also the lot by the pickle ball courts is plowed and open.
    • Hookmaster
      During the summer I've seen rigs parked down by the pickle ball courts to the west of the access. I don't think there is a permit required there but not sure. There were spots open right across Mtka. Blvd. from the access when I've seen rigs by the pickle ball courts. Don't know if it's plowed in the winter. In the attached pic it shows this lot as parking for the Deephaven City offices which are in the nearby. See "P" in the lower left of the pic. Maybe I'll swing by there this weekend and see. I need excuses to exercise the truck.
    • Hookmaster
      Probably. Try charging it and monitor how quickly it comes to full charge. If it does it quickly it's another sign the battery is shot.
    • Pigmeat
      I think I know the answer, but . . . After running for about 3 hours the output on my flasher battery dropped from 12.5v to 10.1v. Pretty much means it's dead, correct?

      I haven't fished that bay in years.  The times I did go in there I did pretty well though.  The entire bay is minimum wake so there tends to be less man-made waves than on other portions of the lake.
    • Wanderer
      I don’t know dude and I’m not going to debate it.  I’ve never used it and always came in from the lake side to Carson’s and there were always people there.     Besides a certain spot I know in that bay you now know most of what I know about it. 😉
    • gimruis
      That's not the issue.  I'm wondering where people park if they're using the Carson Bay access.
    • Hookmaster
      Marcum is located here:  3943 Quebec Ave N, New Hope, MN 55427 I've owned 3 Marcums for 15+ years, all flashers. Both LX3s had an issue and both were fixed and no issues since. I live close enough so I brought them to their location. One of the LX3s is one I bought off of Craig's list. The guy was selling it cheap because it had an issue. It had the same issue as my other one so I knew what the fix would be. I bought it and dropped it off at Marcum to get fixed. Basically an almost new flasher for about 40% cost of new.
