Rum River-Mille Lacs Lake to Onamia

Rum River-Mille Lacs Lake to Onamia Professional Review and Guide

"Flowing form its source, Mille Lacs Lake, the Rum River slowly winds through a series of shallow lakes.

The first 12.5 miles are flat, quiet, and flow as the clear river flows between lakes Ogechie, Shakopee, and Onamia. Portage the Buckmore Dam (river mile 150.8) on the right, and the rock weir at the takeout (river mile 142.0). Most of this stretch lies within the rolling hills of Mille Lacs Kathio State Park."
