Tygart Lake

Rating - Good   

Friday, Mar 15 2019
The lake is approximately 50 feet below the summer pool elevation and rising. The Pleasant Creek boat ramp is open. All other boat ramps on Tygart Lake are closed. Walking along the shoreline and fishing with crankbaits or twister tails during low-light periods can be an effective way to catch Walleye. Recent WVDNR surveys showed a very high abundance of Walleye throughout the lake. High discharges have allowed Walleye to migrate through the dam and anglers have reported very good success over the last week. The discharge is about 5,500 cubic feet per second. 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). Shoreline access to the tailwater is provided on both sides of the river and a ramp suitable for small fishing boats is located at the Grafton Park and Campground just below the dam. Call the Corps of Engineers telephone hotline at 304-265-5953 for daily lake and tailwater conditions.
