O.C. Fisher Reservoir is located close to the town of San Angelo in Tom Green County, Texas. The reservoir is also known as O. C. Fisher Lake and/or San Angelo Lake. The United States Army Corps of Engineers complete the contruction of the reservoir in 1952. The reservoir was originally named San Angelo Lake, but was renamed in 1975 for local U.S. Congressman, O. C. Fisher. The reservoir was created to supply neighbooring towns a reliable secondary water source and for flood control. It also is used for many recreational activities, including, boating, fishing, and swimming. The dam and reservoir are still managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. San Angelo State Park is also found on the shore of the lake, providing additional activities.
**Recently, due to a drought affecting Texas this year (2011), the water has turned a reddish hue and the lake is close to beincoming completely dry. This has affected the recreation on the lake, as well as flood control and a water source for the communities. The red color of the water is brought on by Chromatiaceae, a bacteria that thrives in oxygen-deprived water, making the reservoir a prime spot for the bacteria to live.
