Fishing at Howard is now limited to bank fishing, although smaller watercraft such as kayaks or canoes can still be launched. Reports from anglers indicate that PowerBait continues to produce some very nice size trout. The coming week’s storm is supposed to drop snow levels to 4000 feet.

The access road to the dam, scheduled to be open this fall, remains locked. ODFW will provide updated information as soon as possible. Anglers can still walk the shoreline and fish the point to the south of the dam. There is good bank access via BLM property on the NW side of the lake via the Keno Access Road.

Fall fingerling trout have been stocked this season. Please handle these undersized trout with care and release them unharmed. The shoreline near the dam and near Fawn Island can be very productive during periods of low water. There is additional public access along the Keno Access Road on the northwest side of the lake.
