Full Report: TYGART LAKE – The lake is at the summer level. The water temperature is 74 degrees at 5 feet, 63 degrees at 10 feet, 61 degrees at 50 feet, and 59 degrees at 70 feet. The heads of coves will warm faster than the main lake so bass and sunfish will be more active in these areas. Smallmouth bass can be caught using crank baits or tube jigs along the shoreline. Look for white bass breaking water on the surface throughout the lake. Fish for crappie in the fish shelters between the boat ramps at the marina. Start fishing for walleye at dark when they move into shallow water to feed.

Tailwaters - The tailwater temperature is 60 degrees. Walleye numbers are as high as they will be for the year in the tailwater, and this is the best place in northern West Virginia to fish for them. 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.
