Owyhee is a census-designated place (CDP) in Elko County, Nevada, United States, along the banks of the Owyhee River. The population was 953 at the 2010 census. It is part of the Elko Micropolitan Statistical Area.

Owyhee is within the Duck Valley Indian Reservation and, since about half the reservation is located in southwestern Idaho, the Nevada portion of the reservation unofficially observes Mountain Time, as does nearby Mountain City (located 12 miles southeast of Owyhee and 2 miles southeast of the reservation boundary), even though they are legally in the Pacific Time Zone.
