     Hoover Dam is 727 feet high, 1,244 feet long, 660 feet thick at the base, and 45 feet thick at the crest. It weighs 5,500,000 tons and contains 3,250,000 cubic yards of concrete. Two spillways, one on each side of the canyon, protect the dam and powerhouse from overflow.
The Lake Mead side of the dam, the water is over 500 feet deep.The amount of water released through the dam in a day can be as high as 299,200 gallons (40,000 cfs) or as low as 52,360 gallons (2000 cfs ) depending on how much water is needed down stream.
Hoover Dam Visitor Center is open every day of the year except for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
     Lake Mead National Recreation Area (NRA) offers a wealth of things to do and places to go year-round. Its huge lakes cater to boaters, swimmers, sunbathers, and fishermen while its desert rewards hikers, wildlife photographers, and roadside sightseers. Three of America's four desert ecosystems--the Mojave, the Great Basin, and the Sonoran Deserts--meet in Lake Mead NRA. As a result, this seemingly barren area contains a surprising variety of plants and animals, some of which may be found nowhere else in the world. 
     For the fishing enthusiast, Lake Mead offers some of the best year round fishing anywhere. There are Striped bass, Large Mouth bass, Rainbow Trout, Catfish, Bluegill and Crappie in its waters. There are numerous Bass Fishing Tournaments throughout the year.
