Howard Prairie Reservoir Fishing Report

Howard Prairie Reservoir - Ashland, OR (Jackson County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Trout fishing has been fair to good, with the best success coming early or late in the day. In a recent report, an angler caught very good numbers of 14- to 16-inch rainbow while trolling a spinner and worm combination. Bank anglers need to find areas with access to deeper water—like between Klum Landing and the dam.

Fishing for largemouth and smallmouth bass is good. The lake is 51 percent full. All the boat ramps except Grizzly are open, but the ramps at Klum and Willow Point are limited to small boats. Larger boats should launch at the resort ramp.
