    Catsey,you've got Rochester dam down river from Morgantown. Good place to fish from the bank also there is a ramp above and below the dam. Mudd river emptys in above the dam. Plenty of river to fish between morgantown and Rochester. Cuaght some nice flatties through there. Hope this helps a little.

    There is a ramp right under the bridge off 231. I would say the fishing would be good all over the river in that area, lots of log jams and good structure for flatheads. I'm not sure but that may be around the time they have their catfish festival and you may be able to catch a tagged fish worth some cash. I think the have a $10000 fish. Contact the Butler Co chamber of commerse for more info.

    Not sure about camping? 231 is the main road, I used to work down that way. Haven't ever really checked it out or fished it.
