Conditions : OWYHEE RESERVOIR: There is a lot of algae present in the upper portions of the lake and this is making fishing a little more difficult. The cooler weather in the region should help to reduce or stop the spread of algae in the reservoir and fishing should improve as the fall months proceed.

stop the spread of algae in the reservoir and fishing should improve as the fall months proceed. Reports have indicated that there are/were a lot of dead carp in the reservoir but there have been no reports of other fish species. ODFW investigated and took water samples and found areas that contain lethal dissolved oxygen levels so this is likely the cause of dying carp. Since carp are currently spawning, they are moving into the shallower areas where there is more algae and less oxygen and getting trapped while other species are moving into areas that contain adequate oxygen. The reservoir is currently at 26 percent of capacity.

The Owyhee Dam boat ramp is permanently closed due to safety concerns so users are asked to launch at the Gordon Gulch boat ramp in the state park and the newly constructed launch at Indian Creek.

About: - The 52-mile-long, 13,900-acre reservoir is located approximately 50 miles south of Ontario. The lake is in a remote area, and is considered an excellent warm-water fishery. Lands around the reservoir are mostly public lands under control of the Bureau of Land Management. Boat ramps are provided at four locations, two operated by the Oregon State Parks system, and two operated by Malheur County Waterworks. The lake also provides excellent waterfowl hunting, and the surrounding hills and canyons offer many opportunities for the pursuit of upland game birds. A variety of wildlife may be observed in the reservoir area, including wild horses, bighorn sheep, golden eagles, pelicans, and cormorants. When full the Owyhee offers fishing, water skiing, boating, and spectacular scenery. It can be reached by traveling 31 miles southwest of Nyssa, Oregon, on paved roads. State and county parks are available for use here.
