Outdoor Report

July 15, 2018

Lake McConaughy’s elevation is 3,255.7 feet, receding slightly from 3,256.4 a week ago.  The lake is at 84.5% of capacity.   Inflow is 730 cfs with outflow of 2,376 cfs.

Daytime success for boat anglers targeting walleye has been limited with the warm temperatures.  Some anglers have taken some fish in 30-40 feet of water trolling crankbaits or spinner-crawler combos.

It should also be noted that all boats are prohibited within 200 feet of the Kingsley Dam outlet and morning glory structures.  The statewide daily bag limit for walleye is 4 fish with minimum size limit of 15 inches and no more than one fish over 22 inches.  No more than one fish over 16 inches is allowed for wiper and white bass.

Bank anglers at Lake Ogallala  have been having some success catching rainbow trout using worms, salmon eggs, dough baits or casting spinners, spoons or jigs.  Anglers are reminded the daily bag limit in Lake Ogallala is 5 trout with no more than one over 16 inches.
