Fly Fishing the Upper Rum?

3 posts in this topic

I've got an hour or two to kill on Sunday and was wanting to fly fish the Rum River somewhere between Milaca and Onamia. I know the Rum intersects 169 a few times in that area. Does anyone have any recommendations for a decent accessible spot to catch a few smallies? Thanks!

It's pretty shallow up there, but maybe if you wade around you can find deeper pools. I've only drove by there on 169 to. I wondered about fishing it though. Good luck

I've gained access at bridge crossings up and downstream from the rest area on 169 and had reasonable success - when there's enough water. It's difficult to pinpoint how much water is enough; you'll have to check that out. Also, in my limited experience, Rum smallies are more interested in surface flies than the fish in most of the rivers I fish. Utterly unscientific observation, I know.

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.
