Built as an irrigation supply lake by Central Nebraska Public Power, Jeffrey Lake is a magnet for wildlife and home to healthy populations of multiple fish species. This 595-acre impoundment, in the south-central part of the state, is under fished relative to the quality of the fishery. Bass, catfish, walleye, crappie and white bass are popular targets here. There are virtually no amenities, lodging or campgrounds at the lake. There is a boat ramp as well as other places around the lake with primitive launching options. This is an ideal lake for fishing from shore and fishing from kayaks and canoes.
