There’s not much on the internet providing current lake levels for Lake of the Ozarks but I did find one that provides a daily level –

 

Interesting information about water level and flood gates at Bagnell Dam -

One or two times in an average year the floodgates at Bagnell Dam are opened wide to accomodate high water on the Osage River. If you’re one of the relatively few people who have seen the show in person, I’m sure you’ll agree with me that it is an awesome sight to behold.

For those of you who have never seen it, take a look at these fantastic photos shot by area resident Kevin Dreps. Kevin was on hand January 10, 2005, to capture this amazing display of power as 1,212,000 gallons per second roared through the floodgates.
