Lake Ogallala

LOOKING Closer

Lake Ogallala is created from released water behind Lake McConaughy and Kingsley Dam. During the release, water sprays from the dam, creating a ‘rooster tail’ or an arc of water over the lake that allows oxygen back into the stratified water. Lake Ogallala water stays cold, creating ideal habitat for trout.
