Emigrant remains at 3 percent full

Emigrant Reservoir - Ashland, OR (Jackson County)

Emigrant remains at 3 percent full at the end of irrigation season. The boat ramps are not usable, so there is no access currently for trailered boats. Cool water should have trout and bass distributed throughout the reservoir, so bank fishing should be productive. 

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.

The most current elevations for Emigrant Reservoir and other Rogue Basin reservoirs can be found on the Bureau of Reclamation’s website, here
