I love looking up where people have been, as I just did. I am hoping to get to Pittsburgh this year.

I'd choose mid-week on a low wind day. There's a decent launch with free parking on the Mon River near Southside, close to the Hot Metal Bridge if I recall.

Someday, maybe after I develop my editing skills a little more.

I just looked it up. Looks like a busy ramp, so mid week is good advice. Thanks!

If there was a way to secure the Mokai, you could take the Subway underneath the river and cross the Mon River  two ways in one day.  :)

One reason to always head up river, wouldn't be fun Mokai'ing over that dam. Well, maybe for a split second.  :o

That would be pretty unnerving to be above a dam without an anchor or paddle, and have engine problems. I'd play above one but I'd probably stay at least a half mile from the drop.

Always good to have a float plan and head up river. I was told by a friend who dives that there are huge catfish at the base of the dam. But, they can draw you in, chew you up and spit you out...I'm talking the dam, not the fish.  :)

Agree, but sometimes I've got to jump outside that comfort zone and do 20 miles down river. Always exciting! ;D

Love that bridge! Couldn't help but notice the boat that was in the "No Boats Beyond This Sign" zone. HAHAHA  :D

I noticed too.
I went fishing with a Lockmaster a few years ago and did the same. We got our own minnows from a local creek and caught about 2 dozen sauger each. Other fisherman around us were using store bought minnows and couldn't catch one.
Later, we headed up river thru the Lock and the lockmaster on duty told my friend to let himself though because he was on his lunch break. So he shimmied up the wall and told me to hold on tight to the rope.
Exciting time to go thru the lock by myself for the first time. Thousand of gallons lifting me up, up , up!
