Howard Prairie Reservoir Fish Report for 9-1-2021
Emergency Regulations are still in effect
Howard Prairie Reservoir - Ashland, OR (Jackson County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Emergency Regulations are still in effect: From July 1 through Sept. 30, all size limits and daily/possession limits are lifted for all game fish, due to low water and expected deteriorating water conditions by mid-summer.
The best bank fishing and launching of small water personal watercraft is over near the dam. Recently some smaller boats like a drift boat has been seen launching, however most banks are soft and muddy.
The reservoir is at 4 percent capacity and continues to drop slowly. Anglers should keep an eye out for harmful algae blooms at low reservoirs, and check this article to learn how to be safe while fishing.
The Rogue Fish District is still interested in anglers catch composition, so there are trout stocked with differential fin marks representing different fish stocks. Anglers interested in reporting their catch or learning more about this program and what to look for, are encouraged to call 541-857-2411 and speak with the local STEP Biologist. Specifically, look for clips on ventral fins or adipose fins in your catch.
More information on facilities and camping can be found on Jackson County Parks website. All other boat ramps are inaccessible except near the dam.
