PITTSBURGH DISTRICT LOCKAGE SCHEDULE

Monongahela River


PITTSBURGH DISTRICT LOCKAGE SCHEDULE

Ohio River


PITTSBURGH DISTRICT LOCKAGE SCHEDULE

Allegheny River


  • Each vessel must contact the Lock to receive instructions. They must identify themselves as competitors.

  • All Pittsburgh District Locks monitor marine radio Channels 13 and 16.

  • Each vessel must provide their own bumpers and fenders.

  • All vessels must follow instructions of Lockmaster and Lock personnel.

  • The schedule is for the practice day and all three days of the competition.


Things We Know (or think we know):

  • Trucks and boats will be parked at the Mellon Arena.

  • Anglers will enter the river at the 18th Street Launch on the South Side.

  • They will all converge at Point State Park for the “official take off.”

  • When they return in the afternoon, they will go directly to the 18th Street Launch.

  • They will check in and go immediately to the Mellon Arena for the Weigh-In.

  • Commercial and spectator river traffic will not be restricted; spectators will be asked to be respectful and keep an appropriate distance.

  • PAFBC will provide patrol boats for law enforcement and will transport fish from weigh-in to release boat.

  • PA BASS Federation will provide volunteers to assist anglers.


Things We Don’t Know (this is a VERY long list!):

  • What assistance is required for the Junior Championship?

  • Has use of the Arena lot been confirmed?

  • Who will provide crowd control on the rivers? And how will they communicate with law enforcement?

  • What is the railroad schedule and how might it conflict?

  • Does the Gateway Clipper know about the tournament?

  • Have all necessary permits been obtained?

  • What is the shortest route from the Arena to the launch and back?
