Open all year. Fishing for crappie should be slow this year but typically peaks in June.

Targeting yellow perch continues to be your best bet. Fish sampling by Bureau of Reclamation has showed incredible densities of yellow perch in the past few years and also some larger crappie. Fishing is slow for crappie and brown bullhead catfish but should improve with the warmer weather. Use small hooks and bait for the perch as most are small with small mouths. The reservoir is 14 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.
