Chickahominy Recreation Site


One of Eastern Oregon's most popular fishing spots, man-made Chickahominy Reservoir was first stocked with rainbow trout in the summer of 1967. It is still stocked once or twice a year with fingerlings and legal-size fish. The water level fluctuates with the amount of spring run-off and can be low at times, affecting the availability of fisheries. The recreation site offers 28 campsites, a fish cleaning station, drinking water, vault restrooms and a boat ramp. The extensive valley where Chickahominy Reservoir lies is surrounded by foothills, distant buttes and rough ridges - a landscape that provides far-reaching views of the open high desert country.

Know Before You Go:

  • The fishing season peaks in June and resumes in September as the hot summer weather ends. Ice fishing is popular from December to late February.
  • Shade is limited and strong winds are common; be prepared to tie everything down.
  • Five, eight-inch minimum length trout per day limit; bait is allowed.

Point of Interest:

Wildlife species common to the area include mule deer, pronghorn antelope, black-tailed jackrabbits, coyotes, and ground squirrels. A variety of waterfowl, raptors and songbirds frequent the area as well.
