    1. Mark Merlin 0
      I was thinking of that, but maybe next week, have to put in a glass block window that came in today.

  9. I'm thinking of fishing on the Allegheny tomorrow, and want to fish from shore, any ideas on where to fish?

    1. Jim Holland 0
      Sorry, just got back on here. If you get on River Avenue, right under the Veteran's Bridge is a bunch of parking for trail users. I usually park along there, ...more somewhere.
    2. Mark Merlin 0
      Where does one park down there? I want a lazy day of fishing, not going to bring my canoe. I want to throw 2 lines deep and fish a lure with the other.
    3. Jim Holland 0
      Of course, as you can tell, I'm a big fan of fishing the North Shore in front of PNC Park and River Rescue. I need to get back to my rod holder for my bike, ...more so I can easily hit multiple spots along the bike/walking trail. Had a small flaw in my last version, and a spinning rod rotated into my rear spokes and the reel exploded. Still gotta replace that one....

I took up fishing again in 2016, and can't think of a better way to spend a morning.
