Expect a sunny cold weekend and ice on the water. No reports on ice thickness, but it is likely not safe enough to walk on. There’s some open water near the Dam, but very little pressure.

There is a Hwy 66 and Hyatt Lake Rd webcam that may help if you’re planning an adventure up here to cross country ski or snowshoe. Fishing is probably off the table for now. We recommend using Dead Indian Memorial Rd. to access Howard Prairie. There is a Jackson County webcam at the Dead Indian Memorial Summit.

All campgrounds and facilities are currently closed until further notice. More information on facilities can be found on Jackson County Parks website.

The reservoir is hovering at 8 percent full.
