Kingman Kolony, Owyhee, Wade, Lower Bend, and Ridgeview. The Adrian High School
was built in 1939, the Class of 1940 being the inductee graduates.
Fifty-two miles long, the Owyhee Reservoir (also
referred to as Lake Owyhee and Owyhee Dam) offers some of the most spectacular
vistas in the west. The reservoir contains excellent fishing for crappie,
bass, trout, and catfish. Individuals interesting in sport fishing may
fish the river below the reservoir for brown trout. Picnic areas, boat
launches, and a few beaches surround the Owyhee Reservoir. Tour guides of the
dam are available.
