Fishing for crappie has slowed but crappie are still available. The key is to move until you find the schools.  Most crappie are currently averaging around 10-inches with many to 13-inches. The reservoir is open to fishing all year. Yellow perch are also showing up in good numbers in the catch. Most yellow perch are small but a few 14-inchers were caught last year. The crappie fishery typically peaks in early June.

The reservoir is 89 percent full. With current and past reservoir levels, ODFW expects an excellent crappie fishery next year as well.

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.
