good bait for the allegheny river

So this summer i am going on a camping trip on the Allegheny river and i was wondering what a good common bait would be for this trip, and what color if anyone knows.
I've been told stickbaits work well but im not sure what color.
thanks in advance

Best bait is to catch your own from the river itself. Catch soft-shell crawfish, also look in the shallows, use #14-16 hook tipped with maggots for river minnows. Jerk baits work well, weightless flukes, and also 3/16 Terminator finesse jig green pumpkin orange w/crawfish trailer. Tubes always work.

You say your going in summer. It all depends on the weather if it’s hot, it is a shallow river and not much happens. What you going for all depends on baits. If you just want to catch something crayfish, worm, or minnow. I make my own plastics so I fish them a lot.
