Owyhee Dam

Nyssa, Oregon, USA

Sightseeing

Popular with trout fisherman, the Owyhee River winds its way through the Owyhee Canyonlands in one of the most remote sections of the western United States. Following the river for 13 miles brings you to a short, steep climb at the Owyhee Dam which then finds you skirting the jagged reservoir’s edge before returning back. The ride back lends itself to a different perspective as the sun dips lower and casts its shadows into the canyon below.
