As of the start of 2023, the Vermillion River and its tributaries upstream of the Falls are now following the same open season schedule as Southeast Minnesota for stream trout fishing. You can now catch-and-release trout from Jan. 1-April 14 and Sept. 15-Oct. 15. Between April 15-Sept. 14, you can catch and keep 5 combined trout total with not more than one over 16 inches. Additionally, brown trout are catch-and-release only in the Vermillion.
