One of the few good trout streams in the metro remains the Vermillion river. Since the trout fishing season ends Sept 30th it is a do or die if we want to try it this year, we only have a few weeks of the season left, which are generally regarded as some of the best for trout as they like cooler weather.
There is a small section along the Vermillion River which runs through Farmington where they allow you to keep trout. The park I found falls in this area and is one of the few good accesses to trout streams in that area of the state. Many other trout streams run entirely through farmland and private property and the only way to fish them is to enter off the side of the road in waders and walk downstream; which doesn't work so well for a large group event.
Rambling River is a large park with several different park accesses. Part of the park is called "Northview park" on google but the City of Farmington still considers this to be part of Rambling River. There are two parking lots that are close to the creek acess; we will meet up near the walking trail bridge just upstream from the county Road 50 bridge. The park is viseable from CR 50. There is a parking lot on the South side on Division Street and another on the North side of the trail on Pine street. The walk looks fairly short from either parking lot.
One very important thing, in order to fish for trout (even if you plan on just catch and releasing) you MUST have a vaild fishing licence AND a trout stamp. The trout stamp is $10 and can be bought anyplace you can get a normal fishing license (Bait Stores, Fleet Farm, Walmart, some gas stations)
