2014 Fishing Tournaments & Clinics

  • Sept 13-14     Big Mac Fall Classic Walleye Tournament

Fishing has long been the primary drawing card at Lake McConaughy, with its cool, clear, deep waters. Game fish vary from sporty rainbow trout to the everyday catfish. Prized most highly by the local angler is the walleye, and Nebraska’s current state record of 16 lbs. 2 oz. came from Lake Mac.  The lake plays host to several walleye tournaments each year.

Lake Ogallala boasts some of the best trout fishing in the Great Plains region.  Its colder temperature and well-aerated water that passes through the dam make ideal conditions for trout.

In recent years, Game and Parks officials have also stocked wipers, a cross between  white bass and striped bass that provides excellent fishing action.
