 The lake elevation is currently at about 1063 msl and is expected to continue rising over the next few days.  Excellent angler reports of walleye along with some crappie have been provided over the last couple of weeks.  Trolling bottom bouncers is an effective way to cover large areas of the lake and find walleye.  The Pleasant Creek boat launch is the only open boat launch on the lake during the winter.

 Current discharge is approximately 2,560 cfs.  Lots of walleye and trout are being caught below Tygart dam.  The best walleye fishing is between 1,500 cfs and 5,000 cfs and the best trout fishing is less than 1,500 cfs.  Call the Corps of Engineers telephone hotline at 304-265-5953 for daily lake and tailwater conditions or visit the Tygart Lake, USACE Facebook page

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.
