Hello, I'm originally from the small town of Blaine on old route 40 in Belmont County. I have lived in Maryland for many years. The Wheeling Creek that flowed through Blaine and under the viaduct used to be a bright orange color from the sulfur of the coal mines. It's now cleared up, and I'm curious about the fish in it. I will drop a line in it sometime, but not during the August dog days. I used to fish in strip mines when I was a kid, and I am told that some strip mine lakes have lunker bass. I would greatly appreciate any info on fishing in strip mines in Belmont County. Thanks much, and tight lines.
