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. ‌
