Rum River

I just tried a little bit of fishing on the Rum over in Ramsey today (5/18/04) and had no luck. Not even a bite and I almost went through my whole tackle box. Has anybody had luck on the Rum between County Road 22 and the conjoining of the Mississippi so far?

Not sure what species you are targeting - only legal fish that I know of in there are northerns, crappie and walleyes. I fish the Rum all the time in that stretch for smallies and since the season is still closed I have not been on it yet. Water levels look great though - I pass over it daily on both Hwy 10 and Cty Rd 116.

Was actually thinking about playing around on the river on Sunday for walleyes - I know a couple of spots that might give up one or two. I'm anxious to get back on the river....

Heading back out on Friday with 3 friends. We're gonna try for some walleyes as well. What kind of structure do you look for when fishing walleyes on the Rum?

What areas not too far off of Hwy 10 would you suggest? I'm especially curious about the dam in Anoka or the park upstream of there.

For walleyes I would seek out the deepest holes/pools that you can find. Other threads have presentation suggestions. Another area would be as close to the dam as possible from above - I have a feeling that they stack up in there.

Water is really rocking and rolling for a change! Good to see some more cover actually in the water again.......

Daze - I bet with all this rain, the Rum's water level is really rising! I bet a lot of the shoreline/overhanging trees are back in the water, unlike the last couple years. We still need a lot more rain though! Maybe not right now ('cause I'm feeling like it is late March/early April rather than late May) but maybe in a few weeks. We are still in a big rain defecit.

I bet springtime on the rum is awesome. I might have to get down there in the waders sometime after opener.

I've caught a number of smallies in the area above the Anoka dam but didn't know walleyes would visit that area as well. Thanks for the tip!

If you want to give me a number to contact you again I'll do so when I hit the Rum and have an open seat. I was planning on Saturday or Sunday but now have to work - flying in a candidate for a position and have interview, etc most of weekend. - The week after I have to fish Tonka a couple of times in prep for a tourney on Sunday, June 6th. THEN, the Rum......or if I want to get a couple of hours in after work that week....

Anyway, it will be relatively last minute notice - reach me at wtg4summer@aol.com with a contact #.

Daze, I just sent you an email. Sorry but I didn't see this post until today surprisingly. I thought I read every post on the 'sippi & rum...

I included my cell # so once you've wrapped up your tourney on Tonka (good luck by the way) give me a call when you've got a seat open - after work on the weekends - whatever. If I know the day before I can bring my gear in the car and drive up after work instead of heading home first (an extra 30 minutes is an extra 30 minutes!! smile.gif). Talk to you soon. Oh yeah, but looking for the smallie magnet tourney stuff sometime soon grin.gif

FYI, I got out last week for a couple of hours. I went off from the fair grounds and got 2 miles or so north and didnt catch a thing. I was running buzz and spinners and not a hit or even a fish jump the entire time. The water is very high, lots of docks underwater. Anyone else doing any good?

I'm anxious to finally hit the rum. From my experience, the rum has some great fish, but few and far between! With the water up I bet there are a lot of trees hanging in the water and new shoreline cover to work (not to mention back waters smile.gif).

The water is WAY up everywhere - the 'sippi is probably the highest I've seen it in a few years!

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      One thing I'd like to add, they live about 2 miles north of remer on hwy 6.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      We always called them wing-dings! I also learned that trick on LOW. Very tasty!! Cliff

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
