Howard Prairie remains at 6 percent full

Howard Prairie Reservoir - Ashland, OR (Jackson County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Howard Prairie remains at 6 percent full at the end of irrigation season, slightly above the level at this date last year. Howard produced some nice-size trout last fall, so anglers may want to give Howard a try with cooling temperatures over the next month or two.

Deeper water is available at various points near the dam, but cool water from Grizzly Creek at the upper end of the reservoir or springs near Red Rocks may provide some opportunity in these areas.  

Anglers have success fishing for trout with PowerBait from shore. Anglers trolling from inflatables/kayaks can pick up fish with a wedding ring and worm combination. The low water boat ramp near the dam is not recommended.
