Re: Allegheny River Info
I don;t know of any motorized boat rentals for this stretch of the the Allegheny (from Kinzua Dam to Tidioute), all are point A to Point B type canoe rentals.
On your second question it really depends on the area you are targeting and the time of year/outflow. There are stretches I doubt you would make in a outboard when the water is low. However in between those low pinch points there are miles of good river to fish you could go up and down river with without much concern even in low water.
To answer your questions overall, I don;t think an outboard could run up the river from Tionesta to Warren at normal summer level without some scary moments, damage or at least cuss words...but there are lots of eddys, dredges, and deep runs you could connect in smaller streches that are good to run for a day of fishing, laying in between those two towns.
Ues google map....Around the islands, some of those split off branches can get real shallow and get ya if you pick the wrong one..but if the river strech has no islands then you likely will find a chute in there deep enough to run. But then again I own 4 kayaks and a canoe and am just stating that from river familarity with a paddle, not from running an outboard.
Jets are the norm for the serious river fisherman up here...outboards seem more contained to those that want to fish the eddy/pool behind their cottage, near the starbrick launch or by the refinery/gravel dredge pools towards Warren.
