Fishing Prineville Reservoir

Prineville Reservoir is known for crappie, bass and trout, and feeds the Crooked River which is loaded with awesome numbers of redside rainbow trout in stunning canyon country. Crappie and both species of bass are the prime targets. Much of the warmwater angling for all species is in the shallower upper end as well as within several major coves around the reservoir. Trout anglers also get their groove on here, with a good population of hatchery-stocked rainbow trout, including fish to good size.
