Expect snow this weekend. There is packed snow and slick conditions on the Howard Hyatt road, with plows and sanders working; chains are required by law.

The Mountain View boat ramp and all campgrounds are closed and inaccessible. The ramp by the dam is pretty much limited to personal water craft as well. Bank access is readily available.

If you can get a personal water craft onto Hyatt, fishing can be very good this time of year, but the cold snap this weekend may turn fish off for a bit. Still may be worth a try. Expect snow off the main road.

There is a Hwy 66 and Hyatt Lake Rd webcam that may help you if you are planning an adventure up here. Also, ODOT trip check is worth looking at.

The reservoir is 4 percent full. The deepest portion of Howard is over near the dam, which would be your best bet for trout, fished as deep as you can get.
