A 60-acre impoundment reservoir, 22 miles southeast of Denio Junction.
Bilk Creek Reservoir was constructed during the 1950s and remains a privately-owned and operated impoundment built strictly for irrigation. Like all irrigation reservoirs in the state, Bilk is subject to major drawdowns during drought years. The lake usually retains a year-round source of water coming in from Bilk Creek, a lengthy, spring-fed stream that drains the entire Bilk Creek Mountains, a range that extends north into Harney County, Oregon.
Through a partnership with the Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW), public access is permitted year-round for fishing and light boating. Shallow depth and remote location aside, the lakes produces outstanding catch rates of mostly Rainbow Trout, and a small population of Largemouth Bass, making it a somewhat "locals only" secret. Primitive camping takes place on the south and west shorelines.
