Conditions : OWYHEE RESERVOIR: Recent reports indicate that fishing has been slow with most of the bass having already spawned. Currently, there is a lot of algae present in the upper portions of the lake and this is making fishing a little more difficult. Reports have indicated that there are a lot of dead carp in the reservoir but there have been no reports of other fish species. ODFW is looking into the situation to see if it is a result of decreased oxygen levels.

The county boat ramp will be closed indefinitely due to low water levels creating unsafe conditions. The Indian Creek boat ramp had been closed for repairs but is currently open. The Gordon Gulch boat launch is also currently open and people have been launching from it.

A bass tournament was held on Owyhee Reservoir at the beginning of June and some large bass were caught but the fish appear to be really finicky at the moment. Once you find some bass, it is a good idea to stay put and figure out what they are biting on rather than just moving on to another spot.

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.
