there's good shoreline fishing access and boats are not needed or permitted in these areas due to safety. A variety of species can be caught in navigable rivers, especially in the tailwater areas downstream of dams during the summer. Jigs tipped with minnows fished near the bottom or along rocky banks in low light conditions can be very productive for Walleye and Sauger. Tailwater areas are popular for White Bass and Hybrid Striped Bass and these species can be caught using spoons, jigs, or surface lures. Fishing for Channel Catfish can be very productive during the summer. Monongahela River has an excellent Channel Catfish population as they are very abundant and reach large sizes. They can be caught using live bait, cut bait, and stink baits. Channel Catfish are found throughout the river in good numbers but tailwater areas and areas of the river near structure or tributaries are often productive. Flathead Catfish are less common on Monongahela River but can reach good sizes of 40-inches or more. These fish are often slow growing and very old. Fish larger than 30 inches are often 20 years or older! For those targeting large Flathead Catfish,
