Howard Prairie is 34 percent full

Howard Prairie Reservoir - Ashland, OR (Jackson County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Howard Prairie is 34 percent full. Access for trailered boats remains questionable. Jackson County Parks has decided not to open the rock road near the marina. The gravel road at the dam may be too muddy for launching. ‌

Trout fishing should be good. Anglers fishing PowerBait from shore near the dam caught several trout on Monday.
