The reservoir is likely freezing and thawing

Gerber Reservoir - Bonanza, OR (Klamath County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Open all year. The reservoir is likely freezing and thawing. The warm spell expected this week should keep the lake ice-free.

Targeting yellow perch continues to be your best bet. Fish sampling by Bureau of Reclamation has showed incredible densities of yellow perch. Fishing is also slow for crappie for brown bullhead catfish. Use small hooks and bait for the perch as most are small sized with small mouths. The reservoir is 2 percent full. Most anglers are now fishing near the dam.

Gerber Reservoir is a large turbid reservoir. Bank access is good. Launching boats might be impossible.

Most of the reservoir is on BLM property.
