Howard Prairie is 50 percent full

Howard Prairie Reservoir - Ashland, OR (Jackson County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Howard Prairie is 50 percent full. The boat ramp at the marina is now open but the marina and café are closed until sometime in May. The improvised gravel boat ramp at the dam is also available for small boats. A bank angler recently reported success catching trout 13-15 inches on Powerbait near the dam. ‌

Anglers may want to consider a trip to Howard soon for some early season trout fishing as holdover trout are available and Howard was stocked this week with 7,500 legal-sized trout.
