Pittsburgh area bass fishing?

Anyone want to give any tips about the fishing out there? Any kind of info would be appreciated as I know nothing about the area.
Hoping to find some decent spots before the fall bite.

No one likes to be behind the big truck, but it's better than being under it!

"Kevin VanDam edged out second place finisher Aaron Martens by only 6-ounces, with a three day total weight of 12-pounds, 15-ounces from 11 bass. The low weight set a new Bassmaster Classic record for lowest weight in a tournament. Most of the bass were caught on the Monongahela River, with bridge piers providing the favorite fishing spots".
Wouldn't get my hopes up about catching a bunch if these guys couldn't do it. Maybe in the fall it will be better. This was during last week of July, Tightlines.

Lake Arthur, north of Pgh holds lots of largemouth as well as muskie and stripers.
French Creek, further north, holds smallies, rock bass, muskie, pike and others.
The three rivers around Pgh do hold lots of fish but the smallies are more difficult to find. Fish the bridge abutments and cast towards the tree lined shore if you can get in a boat or a kayak. You might want to try for carp and catfish in those rivers around the city.
Anyway, let me know if you want a couple more local to Western PA sites.
