NOTE: Chickahominy Reservoir was nearly dry in 2022. An abundance of area snowpack and subsequent ground-moisture content could very-likely refill the reservoir in 2023, however, the fishery may underproduce. It will be restocked in 2023 if conditions are favorable.

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.
