Lake Billy Chinook is a canyon lake in Oregon, with clear waters flowing between the deep carved banks of the Crooked, Deschutes, and Metolius rivers. The dam has made this convergence a reservoir instead of a three-in-one river, but the lake is unusually narrow. However, the unique width of Lake Billy Chinook makes houseboating that much more interesting. Boating between the dramatic cliffs in the bright summer months or in the cooler spring season is unlike boating anywhere else.

Whether you're cruising the lake in a comfortably large houseboat or running swift across the surface in a speedboat or personal watercraft, Lake Billy Chinook is beautiful and unique. The water is extremely deep, and you can stare down forever without seeing the bottom.

Lake Billy Chinook is a great place to fish. Bull Trout are the most popular catch and tend to be huge -- the three largest Bull Trout in Oregon were caught here. Other popular species found in the lake are Kokanee Salmon and Brown and Rainbow Trout.
