Trout Fishing on the Vermillion River
The Vermillion River is the largest stream in Dakota County. The City of Farmington provides public access to the river within Rambling River Park.
The river begins near Elko, and travels eastward across much of the central portion of the county until it discharges into the Mississippi River downstream of Hastings. The trout stream portion of the river begins just above Cedar Avenue and ends just downstream of Highway 52 bridge. Additional access is available at the Miles A.M.A. located on the north side of County Road 66 east of MN Highway 3.
