‚Äč RIVER TRIPS RUN IN A CUSTOM-BUILT RIVER ROCKET by ROCK PROOF BOATS

EARLY FALL 2019 UPDATE

For the serious angler, fall is one of the most exciting times to be on the water. My two most frequent autumn venues are the middle Allegheny River and Keystone Lake. The river is good all through the fall and into early winter, basically until ice prevents fishing. For me, Keystone fishes best later in the fall, after the water cools. Keystone is also a great option should the river be too high to fish. Here are a few pics from outings on these two bodies of water last fall. Get in contact if you'd like to arrange a fall trip on one of these two bodies of water!

 

 

 

 

A key focus of the Keystone Connection is jet-boat fishing adventures on portions of the middle Allegheny River.  Skimming through shallow river sections, you’ll have access to miles of lightly-fished waters.  Smallmouth bass are available from April to December.  Typical whole-day trips on the middle Allegheny cover 12 to 15 miles of river.

NOTE: CATCH AND RELEASE FOR ALL BASS OUTINGS (and incidentally caught muskies).

 

 

All trips are subject to $75 deposit.  Any trips cancelled by guests within one week of the scheduled trip will forfeit deposit.  Any trips cancelled within 24 hours of scheduled trip will owe the balance of the outing.         

                                                              

If your interest leans toward learning bass-catching tactics on Western Pennsylvania’s hard-fished reservoirs, consider spending a day on Armstrong County’s Keystone Lake or Venango County’s Kahle Lake. Keystone’s clear water and deep weed growth provides a perfect venue for learning finesse presentations that take smallmouth and largemouth bass that see a lot of baits. Despite its small size, Kahle Lake harbors a fine largemouth fishery including five-pound plus fish. With extensive weed growth of several types, Kahle is a great place to practice a variety of tactics.
