Tygart Lake Sponsored by
Date 14-May-15
Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : TYGART LAKE – The lake is at the summer level and fishing is good. Crappie, sunfish and black bass are all being caught. Smallmouth bass are preparing to spawn. Crappie will be concentrated around the fish attractors near the marina, West Hill Cove and Wildcat. Look for concentrations of white bass in the upper end of the lake.

Tailwaters - The tailwaters are very fishable and should be loaded with walleyes and trout. Recent high flows have resulted in plenty of walleye moving through the dam to the tailwater. 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.

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.
