Kathio State Park/Rum River


Recommended Posts

Headed there to camp Aug 8th. Looking for any advice on fishing the river for smallies or anything else basically. Is it only accessible by canoe or can my 18ft bass boat be used with the high water this year?

Thanks in advance.

There is a boat landing at the park, not sure how deep it is. I have never seen any BASS boats there, mostly canoes. I have fished at the buckmore dam and caught smallmouth, northern pike, and a small musky. Fishing from shore at the dam can be combat fishing at times. I like to float a fly in the current just below the dam, no casting, just use the current and eddies. My nephew likes to float a bobber in the same manner. Good luck

I’m wondering the same thing... can I get my 17 foot already alumacraft on the Rum River between Lake Shakopee and Lake Ogeche? Just want to head toward Lake Shakopee casting. Thanks!

You should be able to this spring with higher water.  They have removed Buckmore Dam now.  I think its more of a rocky/rip rap spill over barrier instead.  Back in the day we used to launch 16 foot aluminum fishing boats with 25 hp outboards there all the time with ease in the spring.  The water level on Shakopee is the highest I've seen in years which should mean that the river upstream and downstream is also high.
