TYGART LAKE – The lake is about at winter pool level.  Fish surveys during last month collected lots of walleye throughout the lake.  Fish for walleye along the shoreline at night or in 25-40 feet depths during the day.  Smallmouth bass can be caught using tube jigs or jigging spoons in 20-25 feet of water or crayfish imitations along the shoreline.

Stocked trout and walleye are being caught below the dam.  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.

The lake is about 23 feet below the summer level and falling slowly. The water temperature is 74 degrees from the surface to 50 feet, 73 degrees at 75 feet and 72 degrees at 100 feet. Bass tournaments have been very successful with smallmouth bass being caught using drop shot rigs in 25-40 depths. Knowledgeable walleye anglers have been report good catches. Start fishing for walleye at dark when they move into shallow water to feed. During the day walleye will be in the 30 to 50-feet depths.
