The lake is about 9 feet above summer pool and falling.  All ramps have been open this week except for Pleasant Creek boat ramp due to water being over the entrance road.  Water clarity is clear and surface temperature is 78F and 70F at 50 feet.  Fish attractors at the Wildcat Cove, West Hill Cove, and state park marina offer very good opportunities to catch crappie and bass.  Smallmouth bass can be caught using tube jigs and crank baits along the shoreline.  Walleye can be caught using bottom bouncers with night crawler harnesses in 20 to 40 feet of water.

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.
