Cheat Lake

Rating - Good   

Tuesday, Jan 15 2019
When Cheat River flows increase coming into the lake causing water temperature to increase, fish tend to move upstream to the head of the lake. Boaters need to use the winter boat ramp located at the recreational park near the dam. The fishing piers at Cheat Lake Park provide very nice fishing areas for shoreline anglers. Channel Catfish can be caught in this area all winter long in about 50 feet of water with nightcrawlers or cut bait. Shoreline fishing can also be found at the Ices Ferry fishing access site.
