Fishing for largemouth bass, channel catfish, walleye, rainbow trout, brown trout, white bass, yellow perch and wiper at Lake Ogallala in Nebraska.

Located on the North Platte River, Lake Ogallala is immediately downstream from the dam at Lake McConaughy. This 650-acre impoundment in southwest Nebraska offers a quieter side for boating and fishing. It is a great lake for smaller fishing boats, kayaks and canoes, as the lake has a "no wake" policy. Bring the kids as this lake is stocked with trout and has healthy populations of bass, catfish, walleye, sunfish and wiper. Plenty of access for shoreline fishing is available around the lake.
