Allegheny River Paddling Program: Franklin - Fisherman's Cove

Forest State Park will be conducting an interpretive canoeing program on the Allegheny  River.  We will be putting in at the PAFBC launch in Franklin and pulling out 9.5miles downriver at Fisherman’s Cove.  Highlights of the trip will be a stop at Indian God Rock with presentation by Ken Burkett, Executive Director of the Jefferson County History Center.  Chad Foster, PAFBC aquatic resource program specialist, will be on hand spotlighting the excellent fishing resource along this stretch.  Don’t forget your fishing poles!  We will meet promptly at the Park Office and car-pool to the starting point.  Remember to bring protective footwear, rain gear, and change of clothes.  Bring your own boat or use one of ours!  Cost is $50/boat with check or money order made out to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  Lunch will be provided to those who register by 8/11 by calling the Park Office at (814)744-8407.  Prior kayak training participants receive a 50% discount.  Space is limited, so please reserve early.
