Ochoco creek is a small creek that runs through the middle of Prineville and has a healthy trout population given it's size. With the Crooked River just a few miles away it's hardly a spot to find seclusion, however, it shouldn't be ignored. It's perfect spot for kids who live in Prineville that don't have a car to make it all the way to Crooked River spots.
Be sure to check the Fishing Regulations and Emergency Rules for this area.
