Awesome on the report. I live right by the rum river, but never fished it yet. Maybe i'll have to take the boat out on the river. I usually stay on the lakes with the boat, and if i decide to hit up the river, i hit the saint croix. Thanks for the report, some smallie action would be fun.

Ceeber how big of boat do you have? If you are in a bigger boat I wouldn't try getting much above ramesy. Smaller boats work upriver but there is alot of wood and stretches with alot of rock.

I've been fishing the rum my whole life and no way I would take that boat on the rum except for around anoka.

I would agree, use that down in the Anoka area and slowly work on exploring upstream. Remember that it is a slow/no-wake area as well. I'll probably be going out this weekend, provided the water levels/current aren't bad.

Work the railroad bridge downstream of the fairground launch.

Last time I was down there it was really shallow on the right side of the bridge.

Stay above it and work the left bank just before the bridge.

Going up stream you should be fine a little ways careful around the bunker bridge it looked a little shallow last time I went through it.

If you go slow you should be able to make it passed the no wake zone and a little ways up were there is less houses and more downed timber on each side of the bank. I wouldn't go much farther than that though.

Thanks to all for the advice. I definitely appreciate y'all opinion to keeping it safe. I decided to hit Peltier Lake instead. Been doing pretty well on the Largemouth Bass, pikes, and panfish. Here's a couple pictures.
