Conditions : OWYHEE RESERVOIR: The Owyhee Reservoir is currently at 25% of capacity and that is up some due to recent precipitation in the region. There is still a lot of algae present in the upper portions of the lake but the shorter days and colder weather should help to clear things up. There have been recent reports of anglers catching trout up to 20 inches in the reservoir this fall. Bass and crappie fishing is slowing down as we move into fall/winter months and the fish move into deeper water.

Reports over the summer indicated that there were a lot of dead carp in the reservoir but there were no reports of other fish species dying. ODFW investigated and took water samples and found areas that contained lethal dissolved oxygen levels so this was likely the cause of dying carp. Since carp were actively spawning, they were moving into the shallower areas where there was more algae and less oxygen and getting trapped while other species movedinto areas that contained adequate oxygen.

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.
