Prineville Reservoirs State Park offers mountain waters that flow out of the Ochoco Mountain Range, joining together to form the Crooked River. This river, confined by it’s canyon and the Bowman Dam, forms Prineville Reservoir. The fishing can be good anytime at Prineville Reservoir. It supports rainbow & cutthroat trout, small & largemouth bass, catfish, crappie, and crayfish. The trout fishing experience is year-round, ice-fishing included in the dead of winter. Anywhere on the reservoir is suitable.

Bass, catfish, and crappie are more suited towards warmer water temperatures; May through October. The upper reaches of the reservoir above Jasper Point and the Bear Creek tributary downstream from Prineville Reservoir State Park are known to produce fine fish. Fly fishing opportunities are best along the Crooked River above Prineville Reservoir and downstream from Bowman Dam.

Vital stats: The campground offers 22 full hookup sites, 23 electrical sites, and 25 tent (maximum site 40 feet). The campground has showers. The park also provides 5 cabins (2 are rustic, 3 are deluxe). Jasper Point offers 29 primitive campsites.
