Shenango River in Pennsylvania

Trip Overview

We put in the Shenango River at Pulaski, PA. There are a couple of abandoned travel trailers just north of the bridge at Rt. 208. We parked right along the water.

Trolled upstream to West Middlesex and floated back to our origination point.

We spent 4 hours on the boat. Including a couple of breaks to do a bit of rock hunting along the banks. Water was low but we only had to portage one time for 30 yards while going upstream.

Saw several ducks but no other signs of wildlife. We enjoyed this stretch of the river as it was quiet and serene. With the exception of an old log cabin, there was not a single house or car or signs of civilization until we reached our upstream turning point, just south of West Middlesex.

Temperatures were in the low 50's. Just a couple of rain drops but it didn't dampen our fun.
