There are many stories about Bagnell Dam that have been told and retold and in some cases, embellished in the Lake area for decades. Local diver Terry Hart tells us that although he sees lots of fish when he dives at the dam, there are certainly no fish large enough or aggressive enough to eat a diver! Greg Stoner of the Missouri Department of Conservation tells us that the largest fish in the Lake are actually spoonbill. It was caught in on the Niangua Arm of the Lake, weighing in at almost pounds and measuring six feet, four inches long. Stoner also told us that the biggest catfish he has seen on this Lake was a blue cat caught in that weighed 92 pounds. So there you have it — no divers have been lost at the dam. This story, although great fodder at the barber- shop, is a myth. There is a window in the dam where you can look out and see the fish. But sorry, folks, there are no windows looking out into the Lake.

Eventually, the term came to refer to all Ozark Plateau drainage into the Arkansas and Missouri Rivers. An alternative origin for the name “Ozark” relates the French term aux arcs. In the later 17th and early 18th centuries, French cartographers mapped the Arkansas and Mississippi Rivers. The large, top most arc or bend in this part of the Arkansas River was referred to as the aux arcs—the top or most northern arc in the whole of the lower Arkansas.
Travelers arriving by boat would disembark at this top bend of the river to explore the Ozarks; the town of Ozark, Arkansas is located on the north bank at this location. Other possible derivations include aux arcs meaning “[land] of the arches,”  in reference to the dozens of natural bridges formed by erosion and collapsed caves in the Ozark region. It is even suggested aux arcs is an abbreviation of aux arcs-en-ciel, French for “toward the rainbows,” which are a common sight in the mountainous regions.
After the Louisiana Purchase in , American travelers in the region referred to various features of the upland areas using the term Ozark, such as Ozark Mountains and Ozark forests. By the early 20th century, the Ozarks had become a generic and widely used term. Karst features such as springs ,  losing streams , sinkholes and caves are common in the limestones of the Springfield Plateau and abundant in the dolostone bedrock of the Salem Plateau and Boston Mountains.
