Full Report: TYGART LAKE – The lake is about 55 feet below summer pool and milky. The Pleasant Creek boat ramp is the only winter time access for boat anglers. Winter anglers should concentrate on walleye, which will move into shallower water after dark to feed. Jigs with minnows or 3-inch twister tails are usually effective. During the winter, the shoreline is easily accessible and casting large Rapalas along the shoreline after dark can be productive.

Tailwaters - The tailwater outflow is about 1,500 cfs and water temperature is 40 degrees. Water color is milky. Large numbers of walleye move through the dam into the tailwater during every high flow (above 5,000 cfs) from mid-December through March. Walleye fishing is best during higher flows (1,500 to 5,000 cubic feet per second) and trout fishing is best at low flows (less than 1,000 cubic feet per second). Call the Corps of Engineers telephone hotline at 304-265-5953 for daily lake and tailwater conditions.
