Steffen’s Rum River Guide Service invites you to experience all that the wild and scenic Rum River has to offer.


Smallmouth bass are one of those fish that you just can’t pass up. These amazing fish love to swim up and down the banks of the Rum River, hiding between logs, rocks, and small pockets of quiet water. Smallies aggressively feed on frogs, minnows, worms, and crayfish; basically, anything that doesn’t try to eat them first. Whether you are an avid fisherman or a beginner, smallmouth bass will find a way to get your adrenaline pumping. The Rum River holds trophy-size smallmouth reaching over 20 inches. Watching these giants jump out of the water and grab hold of your bait is something you'll never forget!
