The Owens River was once a river in New California, but dried up sometime between the Great War and 2281.[1]


The Owens River is mentioned only in Fallout: New Vegas.

Behind the scenesEdit

Owens River is based on the real world location Owens River, in eastern California. The river ends at Owens Lake, south of Lone Pine, California.


  1. Hanlon's dialogue: "Back west, you don't see too many of these. Lakes, I mean. Natural or man-made. Any kind, really. We neglected the dams or pumped all the water out a long time ago. Owens, Isabella, the San Luis. Drained the aquifers of everything they had. Just a lot of mud and dust now. It's a different feeling, watching the sun come up over the water. Takes some getting used to."
