Warm Springs Reservoir


Warm Springs Dam and Reservoir (Vale Project) are on the Middle Fork of the Malheur River about 13 miles southwest of Juntura, Oregon. The 4,600 surface acre reservoir lies against the tall, steep hills on the eastern side of a broad valley. Migrating waterfowl use the reservoir, and it is part of the winter range for mule deer. The area is not heavily used, due in part to the sparse vegetation, mainly sagebrush. Anglers will find smallmouth bass, rainbow trout, brown bullhead, largemouth bass, and bluegill to the west side of the reservoir and dam. Facilities are limited to the west side of the reservoir and dam. Season open year-round.


Located about 55 miles east of Burns, Oregon south of U.S. 20. Access is via a narrow, winding, gravel road.

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
