Conditions : OWYHEE RESERVOIR: The Owyhee Reservoir is currently at 100 percent of capacity and irrigation season has commenced so managers have lowered the flows below the dam and there is not another influx of water anticipated. Crappie fishing has been great these past weeks with anglers catching them throughout the reservoir and especially around the state park and day use area. Recent reports indicate that a lot of the bass have already spawned and that bass fishing has been slow at times when the wind and rain have pushed them into deeper water.

Look for bass and crappie around submerged rocks and other structures. In the past, when there has been a prolonged drought followed by the reservoir filling up, the bass fishery has often been stunted and some bass have experienced die-offs. This may be attributed to the burning of energy reserves during spawning activities followed by a lack of forage available caused by the inundation of water.

The Hines ODFW office and warmwater biologists from Salem will be sampling the reservoir this month to assess the warmwater fishery in Owyhee Reservoir to monitor any changes attributed to the drought and subsequent filling of the reservoir. The results of the sampling will be reported in the weekly Recreation Report.

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.
