Tidioute resident, Jim Latimer, along with the Chamber of Commerce of Tidioute, organized the first Championship Fishing Tournament in 1960. Tidioute is a prime location for easy boat access into the Allegheny River, drawing people from across the state for a great fishing experience. The tournament has evolved into a family weekend packed with fun. Beyond displays and sales organized by local businesses, there is a parade, a craft show, and special events on the weekend of the tournament. The tournament is catch-and-release, where the total weight of the catch determines who goes on to the National Fishing Championship.


Canoe Races

The Allegheny River is a great location for the races as the Army Corps of Engineers can control the water level and conditions. Because of successful races in prior years and the popular location, Warren also hosted the USCA National Championships in 2003. The national competition will be held here again in 2005.

Small outboard motor watercraft, ranging from 10 to 14 feet in length, raced through the waters of the Allegheny.

Spectators can readily view the course from the Kinzua Beach area.
