Mountain waters flow out of the Ochoco Mountain Range, joining together to form the Crooked River. This river, confined by its canyon and the Bowman Dam, forms Prineville Reservoir. Stay where you can enjoy at its finest, and its most primitive, at rustic cabins, motel rooms, and campsites surrounded by the beauty of Prineville Reservoir State Park.
The upper reaches of the reservoir above Jasper Point and the Bear Creek tributary downstream from Prineville Reservoir State Park are known to produce fine fish. Fly fishing opportunities are best along the Crooked River above Prineville Reservoir and downstream from Bowman Dam.
The fishing is always good at Prineville Reservoir! It supports rainbow and cutthroat trout, small and largemouth bass, catfish, crappie, and crayfish. The trout fishing experience is year-round, including ice-fishing in the dead of winter. Pick any spot and it’s sure to become your next lucky location!
