Medco Pond - Medford, OR (Jackson County)

It’s been about a month since Medco received its last stocking of the summer. Trout should still be available, but anglers will need a boat to target them. Fishing from the bank for bluegill can be very productive. There are also largemouth bass in and around the vegetation lines. 

For kids, try fishing a nightcrawler on a #4 hook or smaller under a bobber. A red/black/white choronomid fly is also a tempting target for feisty bluegill along the shore.  These small flies can be fished with spinning gear under a bobber/bubble instead of a fly rod. 

Medco Pond is a private pond and access can be revoked at any time. 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. If you see someone doing something that may risk access for everyone, please let ODFW know.
