Antelope Creek watershed includes 100,639 acres that flow into the Trout Creek subbasin and are part of the Deschutes River basin. Land ownership is 90% private and 10% public with 8,100 acres owned by Bureau of Land Management (BLM).
Land use is predominantly grazed range. Approximately 1% of the watershed acreage is used for irrigated hay and pasture. The town of Antelope comprises 0.3% of the watershed. Agriculture, specifically beef cattle operations, is the main economy.
The Pine Hollow Watershed crosses the boundary of Sherman and Wasco Counties in the southwest corner of Wasco County. It was agreed that Sherman County would provide Watershed Council support to Pine Hollow as it drains into the John Day River.
The watershed drains 83,725 acres (131 square miles) and contains over 143 linear miles of streams within four subwatersheds: Big Pine Hollow, Eakin Canyon, Long Hollow Creek, and Pine Hollow (Map 3). The headwaters of the main stem of Pine Hollow Creek are located near the town of Shaniko in Wasco County. The creek flows mostly north until turning east and flowing into the John Day River at RM 85. The watershed consists of rolling wheat fields, rangeland, and juniper woodlands in the upper portion, dropping steeply into dissected canyons. Elevation ranges from 3,911 feet on the ridge above the headwaters of Brush Canyon to 991 feet at the mouth of the canyon. Secondary tributaries include Hannafin Canyon, Dove Hollow, Brush Canyon, Chapman Hollow, Cramer Creek, Wallace Canyon, and Porter Canyon.
