The Bureau of Reclamation announced that construction at the dam will stop for the winter, so anglers will be able to drive into the parking lot at the dam. Anglers continue to catch trout at Howard despite declining water levels. Shore-based anglers had caught some nice legal and one nice 17-inch trout.

Boat access at Howard Prairie resort is now closed. While the marina, restaurant, and North Campground are now closed for the season, the resort’s South campground should remain open through October. Smaller watercraft such as kayaks or canoes can still be launched.

Most of Howard Prairie is around 10-15 feet deep right now, with the deepest holes, up to about 30 feet, found from the northern edge of the dam up to Hoxie Cove. Water levels will continue to drop into the fall months.

The surface temperature on Monday afternoon was 59 degrees.
