Conditions : 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.

About: -

MONONGAHELA RIVER
Whereas the Ohio tends to provide numbers of smaller walleyes, it is the polar opposite on the Monongahela River, where biologists regularly turn up good-sized (but fewer) walleyes.

"When we sample the Mon, we always collect a few nice walleyes," Jim Hederick noted. "Below the dam in Morgantown we find walleyes up to 8 pounds. We usually find a few in the 6-pound range as well."

Sauger and walleye populations, like the Ohio River, are at the mercy of nature, which has not been exceptionally kind in recent years. Still, enough fish should be present in tailrace and creek mouth areas to warrant attention from anglers.

Monongahela River boat access areas can be found in Morgantown, Star City and Uffington.
