Open all year. The reservoir is frozen. Ice thickness is unknown.

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 with small mouths. The reservoir is at 6 percent full. Most anglers are now fishing near the dam.

Gerber Reservoir is a large turbid reservoir. Bank access is good.

Most of the reservoir is on BLM property.
