Hybrids
MONONGAHELA RIVER - The river is at the normal summer level and fishing continues to be very good for all species of fish. Currents are important during low summer water levels because fish are attracted to the moving water. Therefore, lock and dam tailwaters and creek mouths are good areas to fish now. Hybrid striped bass move in and out of the tailwaters and are being caught using large crank baits or casting spoons. Bass tournaments on the river continue to be successful using tube jigs fished along rocky shorelines and around logs and brush. Game fish such as smallmouth bass, sauger, and walleyes are found along the shoreline where there is current or rock. Minnows have been particularly good baits but 3-inch plastic grubs, tube jigs, and shallow-running crank baits have also been productive. Night fishing for catfish and most other species is enjoyable at the Hannibal or Pike Island tailwaters. Chicken liver is a good catfish bait now.

MONONGAHELA RIVER – Water levels are normal with ice in some areas. The tailwaters are ice free. Saugers and walleyes usually begin feeding at dusk in the tailwaters but will be active during the day when the water is turbid. The Westover side of the river below the Morgantown lock can be productive during high water conditions. Jigs with minnows are always good baits but 3-inch plastic grubs will also be productive.
