Emigrant is 70 percent full

Emigrant Reservoir - Ashland, OR (Jackson County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Emigrant is 70 percent full. All boat ramps are usable now. Legal trout have been stocked several times over the last few months. Cool water should have trout and bass distributed throughout the reservoir, so fishing should be productive throughout. 

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
