Vermilion River

Tip of the week 

Swinging streamers can be productive when flows allow, but drifting nymphs and egg patterns under an indicator gives you the best chance of hooking into some fish. Rather than targeting spawning steelhead, look for the pre-spawn set or "drop-backs" huddled in pools below the gravel. These fish are much more willing to take flies and seem to have more fight in them. In addition, look for breaks in the current because steelhead tend to rest just behind these breaks.

Seven-day forecast 

There is rain in the forcast a couple of days next week so watch the flows and fish when conditions permit.
