Middle Island Creek exits "The Jug" in central Tyler County

In Tyler County, 1.5 miles east of Middlebourne, WV, the 2,065 acre wildlife management area is located within and around "The Jug," a meander in Middle Island Creek and one of the singular landforms in northwestern West Virginia. Topography in the WMA varies from river bottoms to rolling hills with numerous fields scattered among pines and mixed hardwood forests. Hunting prospects are excellent for deer, grouse, squirrel and rabbit. Waterfowl and turkey hunting is also available. Middle Island Creek is highly regarded as a native musky stream and also contains smallmouth and spotted bass, sunfish, channel and flathead catfish and freshwater drum. Access the the WMA from W.Va. Route 18, limited in bad weather or by high water. Access is sure year-round by way of W.Va. Route 46 from Centerville or W.Va. Route 7 from Middlebourne. Camping is currently prohibited.
