Emigrant Reservoir Fish Report for 1-27-2022
Don’t expect much for fishing success out here
Emigrant Reservoir - Ashland, OR (Jackson County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Surface temperatures are quite chilly (low 40s) but and water clarity is down with the recent filling. Don’t expect much for fishing success out here. No boat ramps are usable. Anglers fishing from watercraft such as rafts, kayaks, SUPs and float tubes may need to drag vessels down to the water.
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 7 percent, really just started to rise with inputs from the Green Springs Power Plant.
