Fishing should be good for trout, as well as warmwater species

Medco Pond - Medford, OR (Jackson County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Saturday should see some heavy showers at times. Since mid-February the pond has received 9,100 legal rainbow trout, with the most recent stocking occurring in late May. Fishing should be good for trout, as well as warmwater species. Bluegill from shore can be very fun with the young anglers

PowerBait or worms are the ticket here for trout. A small chronomid fly fished under a bobber can be very good for the bluegill and offers the added benefit of not having to bait hooks constantly. 

Medco Pond is a private pond and access can be revoked at any time. Bank anglers should stay away from the east portion of the lake, again due to private property. To help keep access open, anglers should make sure to pick up their trash, as well as other trash when they are there.

The owners of Medco have restricted vehicle access to along the roadway because of vandals and dumpers. The small boat ramp at the south end of the lake is currently gated, so personal watercraft only is recommended here, and can be launched from the roadway. If you see someone doing something that may risk access for everyone, please let ODFW know.
