access at the dam.

Belmont and Monroe counties – River conditions are clear and
low.  Walleye and saugeye fishing has picked up along the river,
particularly when they begin feeding – about an hour before sunset
and then throughout the night.  Check out the pier at the Pike
Island dam (Belmont County), where anglers have had excellent
success vertical jigging with Twister Tails or jigheads tipped with
a minnow.  Good catches of smallmouth bass and smaller white bass
have been reported in the Pike Island area as well.  Try casting
out with crankbaits resembling minnows or shad.  For hybrid striped
bass and channel catfish, stay in any of the tailwaters.
