O.C. Fisher Reservoir was completed by the US Corps of Engineers in 1952 for flood control on the North Concho River. Most of O.C. Fisher is leased to the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department as is known as San Angelo State Park. It's located adjacent to the City of San Angelo and is an oasis of quality outdoor recreation in an area of west Texas known as Concho Country.
The park contains 7677 acres, most of which will remain undeveloped, and a wide range of facilities are available for the enjoyment of the visitor. The lake level is extremely low. The lake bottom is unsafe. Swim at your own risk (wearing shoes is advisable.)
Desert plants bloom in this semi-desert region. Turkey, deer and quail are hunted here. Angelo State University also has leased some of the lands at O.C. Fisher, and they also offer hunting for deer and turkey. They can be contacted at: Deer Hunt Research Project Box 10888 ASU Station San Angelo, TX 76909 (915)942-2027 or 2389
