Description

Haystack Reservoir is about 3 miles from the city of Culver and is 45 minutes from Bend. It is an irrigation storage facility for North Unit Irrigation District and is fed primarily by an offshoot canal originating from the Crooked River and by three runoff streams. It was named after a butte to the south, the dam was constructed in 1956-1957 which is earth filed. The terrain-surrounding Haystack is plain, consisting of sage and irrigated pastureland that is typical of high desert landscape. The fishing is sometimes slow but with the warmer weather and the magnificent view of Mt. Jefferson it can make the trip worthwhile. Haystack is open year round for fishing but check with the ODFW for any unusual regulations. It often freezes over in the winter, the ice is usually very thin due to the lower elevation of the lake and consequently the ice fishing is poor but with ice-out a viable fishery emerges
