Fish Report

Emigrant has filled to 18 percent full

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Emigrant has filled to 18 percent full. The boat ramps are still 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.
