There is a park called "Peninsula point park" in Anoka, on the west side right where the Rum enters the Miss. I see people there fishing quite a bit. I see them using a bottom rig setup there a lot, but I don't know if they catch anything. There is kind of a hole there after the Rum enters, but I don't know that it's really within casting distance. That area is pretty good on smallies too, so it might be worth a try.

If you get the chance, maybe try the boat on a weekday morning instead of the weekend.

How are the water levels on the rum from the dam down and through the mississippi up and downstream of the mouth? Pretty navigable for a 14 footer? Average depth? Any dangerous rocks? I've just gotten into fishing the upper 'sippi and this looks like an appealing place.

I know this is not saying much, but two weeks ago they were fine if you have a shoft shaft. You could still get up to landing dock at dam.

Catfishing down at dam has been pretty sparce as of late and I am done down their for the year. May hit it agan this fall.

Its gettin' pretty skinny down here above the bridge, jets rule, wish I had one (RP of course). Those that are familer with this spot just might chime in. Them pilings are 2 feet out of the water.

This is from my last trip up there with the Rock Finder, Sunday, might be the last for the year, it was tough getting up there, not recommended, unless your GPS has a lot of marking on it, it's gonna cost ya. blush.gifblush.gif

      A good ice fishing suit ( ice armor, striker gear etc) or waders just put layers underneth. That's what I would do.

      I hear ya on the ice safety.  I am trying to plan appropriately for possibly fishing in 3-6" of standing water.   Thanks guys!

      Hey guys!  Just started the a topic discussion for the Rainy River Conditions.  I did check the river today and there is some open water east of Birchdale Landing and posted some pictures of that Landing and Franz Jevne.  Thanks!

         I went and checked the river just before 9:00 am this morning.  The river is open just east of Birchdale with only a narrow spot open.  East of Franz Jevne (about 2 miles east of Birchdale) the River is almost completely open with some shore ice.  The temperature was 19 degrees and it looks like we are suppose to stay below freezing until Sunday with a high of 32 degrees and then it will get cold again.  It is hard to say how the river will open this year with cold weather coming again but here is what it looked like this morning.  Depending on the weather we may not go and check the river again until Monday sometime.   Where you can see pavement is the Birchdale Landing and the other access is at Franz Jevne:
