Emigrant Reservoir Fish Report for 7-29-2021
The best success out here will be targeting warmwater fish
Emigrant Reservoir - Ashland, OR (Jackson County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
With warm surface temperatures, trout anglers will want to fish off the bottom in the deepest water they can find or early in the morning or evening. No boat ramps are usable. Anglers fishing from watercraft such as rafts, kayaks, SUPs and float tubes may need to drag vessels closer to the point to find firmer substrate. The A ramp area is a mud pit. For bank anglers interested in a little hike, walk along the shore toward the dam to find the deepest water. The best success out here will be targeting warmwater fish.
Emigrant will likely be very close to reaching deadpool by mid-summer. Still there should be areas with 40-50 feet of water. Trout will be found in these areas.
Bass fishing should be fair to good. Anglers are throwing lipless crankbaits/rattlers, spinner baits, and Texas rigs. A nice 3- or 4-inch swim bait is also a good option and according to a recent angler, has produced nicely. Bluegill and black crappie are also available. With the extremely low water, look for rocky outcrops to target.
For more information on park facilities closures visit the Jackson County Parks website. The RV Park is only open to fire victims, but the tent campsites are open to the public.
The reservoir is continuing to drop and is currently at 4 percent capacity. Surface temperatures should be approaching the high 70s or more.
