RIVER TRIPS RUN IN A CUSTOM-BUILT RIVER ROCKET by ROCK PROOF BOATS
River Guide Jeff with first smallmouth of the season on March 13
LATE WINTER 2018 UPDATE: December 2017 was a great month, with big smallies and walleyes taken until the big freeze after Christmas. Between ice, high water water we never got back on the Allegheny until March, catching nice walleyes as well as the first bass of the year. Bass action on the river should fire up by early to mid April. As in the past we'll also be fishing Kahle Lake and Keystone Power Dam. And Pymatuning for walleyes if the fish cooperate! Please note the availability of credit card payment (click on dedicated page for more info).
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.
