Emigrant Reservoir Fish Report for 1-24-2024
Emigrant is still at 22 percent full and filling very slowly
Emigrant Reservoir - Ashland, OR (Jackson County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Emigrant is still at 22 percent full and filling very slowly. Small watercraft and inflatables can launch at the main boat ramp, but the reservoir needs to come up a come up a foot or two for small, trailered boats to be able to launch on gravel below the paved ramp.
Fishing for warmwater species is slowing down but there should be bass available in deep water near the dam and trout are spread throughout the lake. A recent report indicated bass are being caught but it isn't clear if that was in one of the arms of the lake.
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.
