Vermilion River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Look for seams and structure in runs or riffles to find likely holds for fish. Steelhead may be staging at the river mouth and can be targeted using flies that mimic emerald shiners. I recommend olive/white or chartreuse/white clouser minnows. If you need flies or recommendations, stop into Orvis Westlake.

Seven-day forecast 

We need a bunch of cold rain to bring steelhead into the river. Watch the forecast and temps.
