The reservoir is open to fishing all year. Currently, best fishing is for yellow perch or brown bullhead catfish. Best fishing is still fishing with bait near the bottom. Most yellow perch are small but a few 14-inchers were caught last year. Crappie fishing is really heating up. Most crappie are suspended in deeper water. The crappie fishery typically peaks in early June.

Bureau of Reclamation biologists sampled the reservoir last week. Crappie up to 15-inches have been captured by trammel net. Crappie dominated the catch in the Ben Hall Creek Arm of the Reservoir.

The reservoir is 101 percent full and spilling. With current and past reservoir levels, ODFW expects an excellent crappie fishery this year.

Gerber Reservoir is a turbid reservoir. Bank access is good. Several boat ramps exist on the reservoir. Large bass boats can be launched at the Ben Hall Creek ramp. Most of the reservoir is on BLM property. Facilities include a campground and fish cleaning station.
