    I do; one of the record catfish (of some species, at one point in time in the history of WV) was caught at Uffington next to the public boat launch.

    Unfortunately now it's plastered with "KEEP OUT" signs, which I hate to disobey . . . .

    I fish the Mon. Usually between Star City boat ramp and Point Marion PA dam. I have put in up at Uffington, but it is so shallow until you get out to the middle of the river, it is hard to launch your boat in low water.

    Don't know of any other boat ramps up river from the Morgantown dam.

    Best places I have found for catfish is on the outside bank of the river bend below Star City, and on the down stream side of any barge moorings along the Grandville bank. I have heard, never fish, below the discharge of the Morgantown power plant.

    Hope this helps, hope to see you on the river soon.

    Yes, I know there is a public ramp at Pricketts Fort and several in Fairmont, but between Uffington and Pricketts Fort there are two dams. I just want to fish above Uffington but not all the way to Fairmont.

    Does anyone know of any boat ramps up river from Uffington but on the other side of the river, the east bank?
