Monongahela River Sponsored by

Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : MONONGAHELA RIVER – The water temperature is still 78 to 80 degrees. The best fishing success for sauger and walleye is during low light conditions 1 to 2 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. Channel and flathead catfish are abundant throughout the river. Carp are being caught from shore at the Ruby Park and at the Star City ramp. 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.

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.
