Nothing has changed much at Emigrant except surface temperatures are in the low 50s.  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.

Emigrant is close to deadpool. Still, there should be areas with 40-50 feet of water. Trout will be found in these areas.

There is a longstanding health advisory for consumption of resident warmwater species in Emigrant for high levels of mercury. Consult the sportfishing regulations or the Oregon Health Authority for more information on consumption guidelines. 

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 currently at 2 percent, but slowly starting to rise.
