nebraska fishingNebraska Bridge
Locally infamous for often being flooded and impassable, Nebraska Bridge (when it's not underwater) is a favorite spot for fishing.  The flood waters that this bridge receives are due to the nearby Tionesta Dam. As such, the flood waters are not raging floodwaters that carry a truss bridge off its abutments and crush it into scrap metal downstream, but are instead more or less calm and just drown the bridge. Water levels nebraska bridge flood - Copyhave risen high enough that the entire bridge was under water! Kayakers and canoers can access the Tionesta Creek from the nearby boat launch.


A municipal outdoor pool at the MACA (Marienville Area Civic Association), on Pine Street, is the only public pool in the county. You can find some overnight lodging options with hot tubs or pools, such as Forest Ridge. But if you've come for the wilds, nothing beats a dip in a cool forest stream, and there are many to choose among!  Tubing is another option, whether by floating down the Allegheny River, being pulled by canoe or kayak, or going for a faster tubing experience on Tionesta Lake, behind a motorboat.
