    Yup, anywhere above the bridges is great for channel cats... They really like hotdogs.

    NEED HELP GUYS! Does anyone local know of any camping places on Cheat Lake? I have a small RV, hook-ups are not needed. Either in WV or on the PA side around Moun Chateau.

    I found out there are no camping spots. I`ll check on places to fish and go from there. Thanks for the responses.

    You can camp on a beach up the lake, but you need to have a boat. Lots of people camp on the lake and the channel cats are biteing well.
