Emigrant Reservoir Report

Emigrant Reservoir - Ashland, OR (Jackson County)

The RV Park is open but tent camping has closed for the season. Emigrant has been dropping 8 feet per week. All boat ramps are currently unusable. There is very little fishing pressure here. 

For more information on park facilities closures visit the Jackson County Parks website. The water park is closed for the season. 

Water surface temperatures have cooled significantly with the smoky skies. It’s best to fish early if you can get on the water, or are willing to hike toward the dam or along the Emigrant arm. Try fishing Texas-rigged plastics, instead of nightcrawlers, when targeting bass to reduce the chance that your catch deeply swallows a hook. 

The reservoir is currently 13 percent full, lower than most staff have ever seen.
