Thief Valley Dam is located in eastern Oregon, in a visually stunning part of the state. This part of Oregon lacks the coastal serenity and the beautiful mountains located to the west. What it has though is a stark desolate beauty that cannot be underestimated. If you travel through the area, a stop off at the small Thief Valley Dam and its reservoir can make for a nice break. Fishing is one of the many popular activities there, as well as just exploring the countryside.
