    Well its that time of year again. Here is the new Allegheny River report thread for 2010.

    Swung by the river at Freeport the other day and there was a big hole in the ice where the Kiski runs in. With this warm spell we are having the ice should be gone all the way to the shore if not up and down the river. I can taste the walleye already!!

    That whole area of the river is good flattie territory!Fished it years ago when I still had a boat.It,s not as channelized as the pools closer to Pittsburgh,got more islands,pools,more natural setting.Lot of big cats been pulled out of that section over the years.

    Freeport is about 15 miles north of St. Margarets. It is located in the lower corner of Armstrong County. Old rt. 28 is called Freeport Rd.
