Conditions : CHEAT LAKE – The lake will stay at the summer pool until November 1 when it can then be lowered a maximum of 13 feet. Yellow perch can be caught in the flats around the Ices Ferry and I-68 bridges using small minnows or pieces of night crawlers on a 1/16 ounce jig. Channel catfish are doing well and 2 to 3-pounders are abundant throughout the lake but are particularly numerous upstream of Mt. Chateau. Night crawlers on a number 6 hook with a ½-1-ounce egg sinker cast into 15 to 25-feet of water will catch catfish. The best areas for shoreline anglers are the Cheat Lake Park fishing piers and the Ices Ferry Bridge Public Access Site. Cheat Lake has the best channel catfish population in this part of the state.

About: - CHEAT LAKE
Cheat Lake, a 1,730-acre lake in Monongalia County, currently contains a good population of fat, eating-sized walleyes, fish that are a result of stockings made a few years ago.

A lake with a history of acid mine drainage contamination, game fish populations have been on the rebound in Cheat Lake for a number of years. First to be noticed was the largemouth bass fishery. The lake is now one of the better largemouth lakes in the state, according to results of bass tournaments held there. Walleyes may soon be stealing some of the limelight.

"Cheat Lake has a lot of walleyes in the 16- to 18-inch range," biologist Hederick reported.

The DNR hopes to establish a self-supporting walleye population in the Cheat. Cheat Lake is near Interstate 68, six miles northeast of Morgantown.
