Conditions : Kanawha River – Reports of nice catfish boated. A number of very large blue catfish have been caught at tournaments and by individual anglers fishing during low light conditions and into the night, give it a try. This fishery is growing and there is always a chance of a near record, or state record size blue catfish. Hybrids are biting behind locks along the Kanawha and Ohio, try shad type lures. Dawn and dusk are the best times to try as well into the night for these hard fighting fish. Look for flowing water and the fastest current - fish the edges of this water as hybrids will sit in the slack water beside the faster currents and dart out into the fast water to pick off baitfish, and other food items. At this time of the year, they will usually be very close to the lock structure to get maximum benefit from food coming through the lock and also the fast flowing water directly below the lock. Due to the water churning as it goes through the lock, water directly below the lock structure holds more oxygen than slack water downstream. As a general rule, most game fish will be close to the lock structure right now, fish accordingly.

About: -

KANAWHA RIVER
The lower portion of the Kanawha River can provide good fishing for saugers, according to fisheries biologist Zack Brown. Like the Mon and Ohio rivers, it is subject to the whims of nature.

Brown said anglers should concentrate on the lower portions of the Kanawha River, with the three lock and dam systems focusing angler attention. The best fishing often occurs in the last pool of the Kanawha, where fish can migrate in from the Ohio River as well.

Boat access spots on the Mason County portion of the Kanawha can be found at Leon and Point Pleasant.
