Expect snow at Howard Prairie this weekend. The reservoir is 32 percent full and has good water clarity. All boat ramps are closed at this time due to low reservoir levels. Inflatables and kayaks can launch from shore.

If you can get a small inflatable or kayak in, try trolling worms or lures. Anglers report catching some big fish at Howard Prairie. With cool water temperatures, the larger trout are active and biting at lures with red and black colors. Bank fishing can still be a good option here if you can get to some deeper areas. 

Howard Prairie has been stocked with our annual “fall fingerlings.”  These trout are not of legal size, but should be by the spring, please be cognizant of the size of fish you are catching and gently release these smaller fish to grow until next year. 

The marina and restaurant, and the campground are now closed for the season
