Fishing report: Heavy bass population in Allegheny River, Westmoreland County

In Westmoreland County, the Allegheny River is providing anglers with plenty of opportunities to catch a variety of fish. In the early morning and early evening, fishermen are reeling in both largemouth bass and smallmouth bass. According to reports, both variations of bass are populating the water surrounding the structures that dot the riverbanks. Anglers are also picking up muskellunge downstream from the locks and dams, and where the smaller rivers converge with the Allegheny. Catfish are a popular catch for nighttime visitors using chicken livers as bait.

The Monongahela River in the southern portion of Washington County is yielding nicely sized walleye, specifically around structures in the areas of major tributaries. Around dawn and dusk hours, anglers are enjoying a solid muskellunge bite. A few catfish catches are also being reported, although the rate of the catches is seemingly declining.
