Taylor County
Doe Run sub impoundment

  Lake  Doe Run sub impoundment 

  Acres  11 

  Directions  Doe Run sub-impoundment of Tygart Lake is a 10-acre lake located 12 miles south of Grafton on the Pleasant Creek Wildlife Management Area in Barbour and Taylor counties. It is located 2.5 miles off U. S. Route 250/119 on County Routes 10 and 119/25. 

  Description  The lake was constructed in 1926 with a maximum depth of 7 feet and an average depth of 4 feet. A graveled access road extends to the lake for use by small boats and car-top boats. Gasoline and electric motors are allowed. Doe Run remains fishable much of the time when Tygart Lake is not fishable. Camping and toilet facilities are located 1 mile from the lake. 

  Fishery  Doe Run sub-impoundment provides a warmwater fishery for most species found in Tygart Lake, because the level of Tygart Lake rises above the Doe Run dam several times each year fish to move in and out. Largemouth and smallmouth bass, sunfish, crappie, yellow perch, channel catfish, and carp are the species most likely to be caught. Bow fishing for carp is particularly good during the late spring and summer months.
