Full Report: TYGART LAKE – The lake is back at summer pool level. Surface temperature is about 83 degrees at the surface, 76 degrees at 30 feet and 73 degrees at 50 feet. Fish for walleye at depths of 40 to 50 feet using minnows or night crawlers. The rock pile fish attractors located between the boat ramps at the marina are concentrating fish. Try a buzz bait along the shoreline in the evening for smallmouth bass top water action. White bass travel in schools and can be seen chasing minnows on the surface. Casting spoons into the schools is a good way to catch white bass.

Walleye and yellow perch have been reported being caught in the tailwater, as well as a few trout. 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 hotline at 265-5953 for the current lake level and tailwater conditions.

Full Report: TYGART LAKE – The lake is about five feet above summer pool and rising. Water clarity is clear and reports of smallmouth bass being caught have been good. For crappie, try fishing with jigs and minnows around fish attractors at the Wildcat Cove, West Hill Cove, and state park marina. Walleye can be caught in 20 to 40 feet of water.

Outflow of in the tailwater is less than 2,000 cfs, temperature is 69 degrees and clear. Trout from spring stockings are still being caught. Call the Corps of Engineers telephone hotline at 304-265-5953 for the current lake elevation, tailwater conditions, and boat ramp conditions.

Full Report: TYGART LAKE – The lake is just under summer pool and falling. Water clarity is clear. Crappie, smallmouth bass and walleye are being caught. Fish will be concentrated around the fish attractors near the marina, West Hill Cove and Wildcat.

Outflow in the tailwater is about 400 cfs and is very fishable. Walleye fishing is best at flows above 1,500 cfs and trout fishing below 1,500 cfs. Call the Corps of Engineers telephone hotline at 304-265-5953 for the current lake elevation and tailwater conditions.

Full Report: TYGART LAKE – The lake is 20 feet below summer pool level and is expected to slowly raise over the next several days. Walleye are near the end of spawning and will move into shallow water to feed or spawn at dusk. Some walleye will also move up into river at the head of the lake to spawn. Try casting large Rapalas along the shoreline about an hour before and after sunset. Drive into Cove Run and fish the river from the shore.

Walleye have been moving through the dam during the recent high water discharges. There are also lots of trout in the tailwater. 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

Full Report: TYGART LAKE – The lake level is about 40 feet above summer pool and all boat ramps are currently closed. Lake elevation is expected to decrease over the next few days. The tailwater outflow is about 15,000 cfs and muddy. Water temperature is 40oF. The tailwater boat ramp has been under water for the last few days and shoreline access is minimal during these high flows. Once water flow decreases, younger walleyes should be readily available as they have moved through the dam into the tailwater during high flow events (above 5,000 cfs). Walleye fishing is best during higher flows (1,500 to 5,000 cubic feet per second). Trout were last stocked in early February 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.

Full Report: TYGART LAKE – The lake is at elevation 1,067 feet and is predicted to rise more than 30 feet in the next day due to heavy rains. Lake water color is milky. The tailwater outflow is about 5,050 cfs and muddy. Outflow is expected to increase over the next couple of days. Call the Corps of Engineers telephone hotline at 304-265-5953

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.

Full Report: TYGART LAKE – The lake has dropped nearly 40 feet over the past week and is near winter pool elevation. WVDNR surveys have shown numerous walleye throughout the lake. Winter anglers should concentrate on these walleye, which will move into shallower water to feed at dark. Jigs with minnows, minnow imitations are effective as is casting and retrieving Rapalas along the shoreline after dark. Bank anglers start fishing about dark and into the night. Boat anglers should fish deeper water throughout the day.

Stocked trout and walleye are being caught below the dam. 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). Lake level and tailwater conditions can be highly variable during winter months. Call the Corps of Engineers telephone hotline at 304-265-5953 for daily lake and tailwater conditions.

Full Report: TYGART LAKE – The lake is about at winter pool level. Fish surveys during last month collected lots of walleye throughout the lake. Fish for walleye along the shoreline at night or in 25-40 feet depths during the day. Smallmouth bass can be caught using tube jigs or jigging spoons in 20-25 feet of water or crayfish imitations along the shoreline.

Stocked trout and walleye are being caught below the dam. 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).
