Full Report: MONONGAHELA RIVER – The river is high and turbid, but you can catch fish that move into shallow water along the shoreline. Channel catfish and some nice flatheads have been reported being caught while the river has been high and muddy. Cut bait, chicken livers, night crawlers have been productive baits for channel catfish and live bait has been more productive for flatheads.

Full Report: MONONGAHELA RIVER – Water temperature is around 70°F and has risen nearly 5°F in the past few days. This increasing water temperature will be good for fishing. Sauger and walleye are always attracted to the currents in the tailwaters of the locks and dams. Morgantown tailwater is the easiest for bank fisherman to access, but the Hildebrand and Opekiska tailwaters can also be fished. Warm water discharges at the Rivesville and Morgantown power plants will also attract fish all spring. A pier at the Morgantown plant makes fishing safe and convenient.

Full Report: MONONGAHELA RIVER – Walleye and sauger are now nearing the end of spawning. A good pattern now is to fish for sauger and walleye an hour before and after sunset, especially in the tailwater areas below the lock and dams. Sauger and walleye usually begin feeding at dusk in the tailwaters but will be active during the day when the water is turbid. Jigs with minnows are always good baits but 3-inch plastic grubs will also be productive.

Full Report: MONONGAHELA RIVER – Water temperature has warmed over the last week and is about 44oF.

Full Report: MONONGAHELA RIVER – The river is becoming high and muddy with recent heavy rains. However, increased river flows should cause fish to move into dam tailwater areas. Fishing below the Morgantown lock and dam can be very productive and is the most accessible of the Monongahela River dams in WV.

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.

Full Report: MONONGAHELA RIVER – The water temperature is around 55 degrees. The best fishing success for sauger and walleye is during low light conditions one to two hours before and after sunset. Sauger, smallmouth bass, walleye, and white bass are always attracted to the currents in the tailwaters. Jigs with minnows are the best baits right now. Troll large crank baits for muskies anywhere on the river. The shoreline from the Morgantown lock to the mouth of Deckers Creek is always a good place to fish from the shore.
