    Hi all, new to the board but not new to catfishing. I`m in WV and looking to return to South Branch in Romney. Anyone in that area that`s been fishin` cats yet? Also the river temps will be close to 50 soon. Anyone have thoughts on when the channel cats start getting active?

    The Ohio R. has been a mess so I have not been out there but I caught a 20lb carp on the Mud R. last week. Expecting fishing to pick up this week-end as the water returns to normal flow and fish begin moving upstream.

    As far as water temps go, I have caught Cats in Jan. and Feb. in Beech Fork Lake. The outflow usually runs between 35 and 45 that time of year. If you can find 'em, I 'spect you can catch 'em.

    Good Luck!
