Floating Upper Allegheny

Anyone familiar with the river way up in McKean County from about Port Allegany , down to Eldred ?
Considering a float trip for ducks in early October.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks

Never floated it, but I just checked it out on Googlemaps. Looks like a heck of a run. Would be a very long and great nature float.

Good luck! Take pics!

I would recommend some pre season scouting before you try that long of a float. I’m not sure you could float that in one day. You might have to do shorter segments of the river. There will be low spots you’ll need to drag. Brush piles and logs you’ll have to drag around and other obstacles. Definitely ducks through there, but don’t expect it to be lonely. Floating the river is pretty common in duck season.

Floating from Larabee to Eldred fishing in nice weather takes all day.
