Expect weather to bounce around a lot this week, sunny and warming, followed by rain and snow showers again. There were reports of open water over near the dam last week for anglers willing to walk around the dam and bank to get to it. However, fishing was slow.  There was still thin ice on much of Howard Prairie lake.

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.
