Monongahela lock areas
In Greene County and in the southern half of Washington County, walleye are beginning to move into the Monongahela lock areas. Fishermen looking to pick up flathead catfish might have a difficult time, but it is reported that the Maxwell Lock and Dam area is harboring a steady flow of gar. The best success rates for the gar are attributed to using live bait with a pantyhose tail.
While fishing has been slow recently on the Monongahela River in Fayette County, the Youghiogheny is yielding channel catfish, smallmouth bass and some trout for local anglers.
