Yough river and water flow

Ok guys, I need some school here.

MomOSix and I spent the weekend in a cabin near the Deep Creek Hydro plant at the base of Hoyes Run Rd.

Nice little place, but I am sitting there, drinking a cold brew, watching a guy fly fishing, and pondering the flow of water.

So, I used to get Muddy Creek and Swallow Falls confused. Now I think I know the difference.

But it seems to me that the river is flowing South to North. If that Yough river originates somewhere north of me, way up in PA, why does it not flow North to South.

I can't figure it out! Was going to ask a trout fisherman, but I didn't want the lure he was casting to appear smarter than me.

Yeah, it flows from somewhere in WV, roughly north, to McKeesport where it meets the Monongahela. Rivers flow downhill.

The Monongahela also flows north towards Pittsburg

And the Shenandoah also flows north towards Harpers Ferry and the Potomac.

It is on the other side of the Eastern Continental Divide. It flows north/west and dumps into the Monongahela River. That water ends up in the Gulf of Mexico.

If I had to guess I'd say 90% of Garrett county is west of the continental divide and flows that way, but I'm guessing but I'm probably close. And please don't mention the flush tax, definately a sore subject around these parts.
