HEMLOCK LAKE & LAKE IN THE WOODS report

Hemlock Lake - Roseburg, OR (Douglas County)

The road to Lake in the Woods was open recently, so as long as no more snow falls, anglers should be able to reach the lake. Hemlock was not accessible last week, but may be open soon with hot temperatures in the forecast. Fishing should be good since the lakes have likely seen low pressure from anglers.

The USFS has closed the campgrounds for the season, but will open back up when the road conditions improve. Anglers should be able to access the lakes from other areas. Anglers should check with the Umpqua National Forest (541-496-3532) for information on camp and ramp closures.

Anglers fishing the high lakes in the Umpqua District are encouraged to e-mail fishing reports. Remember to only keep trout at least 8 inches long, and only one trout over 20 inches per day. Last updated 4/14/21

HOWARD PRAIRIE RESERVOIR: rainbow trout, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass

Howard is ice-free but water is a bit turbid. The low water boat ramp near the dam is usable.  

There should be some hold over trout present and now would be a good time to try and harvest some of those fish as they do make excellent table fare.

With the extremely low reservoir levels, as of this time, no trout are planned to be stocked.  This could change as the situation develops. Trout destined for stocking in Hyatt and Howard, are being re-allocated to other local waterbodies.

There is a Hwy 66 and Hyatt Lake Rd webcam that may help if you’re planning an adventure. 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 still hovering at 9 percent full. Last updated 4/14/21.
