Bully Creek Dam and Reservoir (Vale Project) are on the Bully Creek about 8 miles northwest of the Creek’s confluence with the Malheur River. Forested areas at the reservoir provide opportunities for viewing migrating birds. In the spring, fall, and winter you may see loons, grebes, ducks, and hawks. Nearby a red rock formation sometimes harbors Rock Wrens and Golden Eagles. Reservoir is 985 surface acres with 7 miles of shoreline. Paved access to the dam. Available fish species include smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, rainbow, and black crappie. The reservoir is used as a resting place by migratory waterfowl with some ducks remaining to nest. Sparse vegetative cover of sagebrush and grass provides habitat for small mammals and birds.
