Glenn McKown

Memorial Tournament

The Glenn McKown Memorial Bass Tournament was started 17 years ago when the grandsons of Glenn McKown wanted to do something in his memory. Each year on Saint Patrick’s Day the grandsons got together and would collect money to get something started. With Glenn being a dedicated fisherman, it was obvious that a fishing tournament would be fitting.

Family members contacted Deb Genter, who had experience with bass tournaments, for some help. Since then, the Glenn McKown Memorial Bass Tournament has been held the first Saturday after Labor Day.

This tournament is a “Catch and Release” event that only allows river fishing and is limited to 50 boats. As a team tournament your team can consist of two-men, couples and adult/youth (under the age of 16).

This year the Bass Tournament will be held on Saturday, Sept. 7 from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. with weigh-in to be at 4 p.m. at the Tidioute Boat Launch.

Entry fee is $30 per boat and fishing is permitted in the Alleghney River from the tailwaters at Kinzua Dam down as far as the Presidents, PA Boat Launch. River only, no creeks.

Smallmouth Bass caught on artificial bait only are to be brought to the scales in a water-filled container.

Applications forms are available at Deb’s Beauty Shop or call Deb at 484-7407.
