Full Report: MONONGAHELA RIVER – Warm water discharges at the Rivesville and Morgantown power plants will attract fish all winter. Fish appear to have not moved into the dam tailwater areas yet, as there have been very few high water events yet this winter. They tend to congregate at tributary creek mouths, especially Buffalo, Paw Paw and Prickett creeks. Walleye and sauger can be caught in deep water all day near the mouths of tributaries and vertical jigging minnows is a very effective method. The shoreline from the Morgantown lock to the mouth of Deckers Creek is always a good place to fish from the shore.

Full Report: MONONGAHELA RIVER – Cold river temperatures will cause fish, particularly hybrid striped bass, to be attracted to the warm water discharges at the Rivesville and Morgantown power plants. A pier at the Morgantown plant makes fishing safe and convenient. Walleye and sauger are starting their winter pattern and will move in and out of the tailwater areas and tributary creek mouths, especially Buffalo, Paw Paw, and Prickett creeks. Start fishing about an hour before sunset because sauger and walleye will begin feeding at dusk. Jigs with minnows are particularly good baits but 3-inch plastic grubs and deep-running crank baits are also productive. The shoreline from the Morgantown lock to the mouth of Deckers Creek is always a good place to fish from the shore.

Full Report: MONONGAHELA RIVER – Bass fishing typically slows down during winter months, but walleyes and sauger can be caught all winter in the areas directly below the dams. They usually begin feeding at dusk but will be active during the day when the water is turbid and skies are cloudy. The Westover side of the river below the Morgantown lock can be productive during high water conditions because the current is reduced along the shore below the lock. Live bait such as minnows is productive in winter months, but 3-inch plastic grubs will also be productive.
