May Not Be A Bad Spot to Target Crappie & Bass

Emigrant Reservoir - Ashland, OR (Jackson County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

There’s not much that has changed out here. But with the nice weather forecast for this weekend, it may not be a bad spot to target if you’re looking to stay close to home and live in the Medford/Ashland area. Boat accessibility is lacking though, so expect to drag down personal watercraft to the water’s edge, or fish from the bank. Crappie and bass fishing would be on the menu. Target any area that looks to have some structure or any area that is seeing some inflow plumes.

The RV Park is open but tent camping has closed for the season. All boat ramps are currently unusable due to extremely low reservoir levels. There is very little fishing pressure here.

For more information on park facilities closures visit the Jackson County Parks website.

The reservoir is at 3 percent -- barely a puddle -- but starting to rise. Expect the banks to be muddy with the recent wet weather.
