Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : 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.

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.
