Date 04-Apr-14
Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : TYGART LAKE – The lake is about 10 feet below the summer level. Walleye are still spawning and many will move to the Tygart River at the head of the lake. This area can be accessed at the Cove Run Road by anglers without boats. Walleye can be at any depth in the lake but will move into shallow water to feed at dusk. White bass also move to the head of the lake at this time of year.

Lots of walleye are also moving through the dam to the tailwater and fishing will be good for the next few months. Trout have also been stocked. 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.

About: - Located in the picturesque West Virginia countryside, Tygart Lake's blue waters and irregular shoreline contrast with the surrounding steep mountain terrain. The steep, wooded mountainsides and the clear inviting waters of the lake attract many visitors to Tygart for a day of relaxation and enjoyment. Located around the lake are several picnic areas, hiking trails, playgrounds, and the State Park's swim beach.

Fishing: Tygart Lake is considered by many to be one of the best bass waters in the area and fishing its deep waters can be a rewarding and exciting experience. In addition to bass, anglers will find abundant walleye, muskie, crappie, perch, and numerous pan fish. All species of fish found in Tygart Lake are sustained through natural reproduction rather than by stocking attesting to the exceptional water quality of the lake. Fishing for rainbow and golden trout, which were introduced into the tailwaters of Tygart Dam, is also popular with many anglers.

Facilities: Those seeking overnight accommodations at Tygart Lake have a choice between lodge or cabin facilities available at the State Park. There are also campgrounds available at the State Park and the Pleasant Creek Public Hunting and Fishing Area for those desiring a more rustic experience during their stay. The City of Grafton also operates a campground located in the vicinity of the dam's outflow area.
