Dry Well Creek

Dry Well Creek is a creek in Harney County, Oregon, United States in the Harney Basin of Eastern Oregon.[1] It is located at an elevation of 5000 feet,[1] and is one of a series of streams that eventually drains into Malheur Lake, a Great Basin lake that has no outlet.[2] Dry Well Creek is an intermittent fish-bearing stream that flows into Little Emigrant Creek, which in turn flows into Emigrant Creek, until July, when it dries up.[3][4] The creek is part of a watershed restoration project.[4] Resident aquatic species in the project area include redband trout, Malheur mottled sculpin, speckled and longnose dace, redside shiners, bridgelip suckers, Columbia spotted frogs, crayfish and western pearlshell mussels.[4]
