Southwest PA Waterfowl

I just joined this forum but I'm not new to hunting ducks and geese. I hunted in the NW region near Hartstown and Pymatuning. I'm a freshman at Cal U in SW PA and I am looking for any public place that has access to an area that has waterfowl. I have used Google maps to search for ponds, lakes, or any decent sized creek that goes into the Monongahela. Any advice on any public place would be great.

Welcome to the forum!
Our duck spots here in SW Pa are very few and far between. Scouting is essential.
If you do find success don’t post it up, or it will no longer be a good spot.

Have you hunted the Monongahela? It runs right by campus and wasn't sure how ducks would be. I have saw plenty of geese but have not noticed ducks. I imagine come late season there will be quite a few divers.

When i was going there - i never noticed ducks around campus, but that was a longer time ago than I'd care to admit. I'd imagine that a boat would be a necessity if you were going to try and hunt the river there. The river also isn't that wide - between campus, the town, houses on the other side of the river - it looks like a huge safety zone PITA as far as the river is concerned.

If I were you, and there's geese around - I'd probably be more apt to concentrate on them, figuring out where they're feeding, and securing permission to hunt them in the fields nearby.
