    I haven't check myself, but word on the street is Clyde & Patti's Lounge across the street from Lock 3 has minnows. I also saw via Facebook that bucks and bows on rt 8 has minnows.

    As far as I know, Jimmy's in Greensburg still open:
    Address: 71 Huff Ave, Greensburg, PA 15601 




    Phone(724) 837-6475
     
    Probably best to call first to make sure.

    I am pretty sure Shadlure in West Elizabeth is open and has minnows.  More South than East, but if planning to pass that way where you are fishing.

    My boys and I get all our live bait at Allegheny Bait & Tackle in Tarentum. If you've come all the way up to Cheswick from the City, it's just a few more miles north.

    Never try to argue with an idiot. They'll bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    Some people do not deserve to run a business. I have called Jimmys in Greensburg and A Capital in Irwin four times each this week....Left messages EACH time and no reply from either of them!!!

    shad lure is open, consistent in their advertised hours, and always has minnows.

    Just FYI, saw a post that Joe's TU in West Newton is closing so you will need to find an alternate in the future.

    This season I've been going to Allegheny Angler for minnows, its been a great experience since they moved the one grumpy employee into the back office.
