Howard Prairie Reservoir Fishing Report

Howard Prairie Reservoir - Ashland, OR (Jackson County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Expect snow for the weekend. Fishing at Howard is now limited to bank fishing, although smaller watercraft such as kayaks or canoes can still be launched for the angler willing to brave the cold water, partial patches of ice and snow!
The access road to the dam remains locked.  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.
