Tygart Lake Sponsored by
Date 12-Sep-16
Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : TYGART LAKE – The lake is just under summer pool and water clarity is clear. Water temperature is warm, so fishing is best in the mornings and evenings when fish are more active. Reports of fishing for smallmouth bass, especially in the mornings and evenings have been good. Fishing for channel catfish can be good this time of year also. Look for white bass breaking the water on the surface as they chase shiners. For fast action, cast small spoons past the schools of white bass and retrieve through them.

Outflow in the tailwater is about 500 cfs with good reports of nice smallmouth bass have been received over the last couple of weeks. Call the Corps of Engineers telephone hotline at 304-265-5953 for the current lake elevation, tailwater conditions, and boat ramp 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.
