Launching a boat on a trailer is likely impossible

Gerber Reservoir - Bonanza, OR (Klamath County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Open all year.

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. Use small hooks and bait for the perch as most are small with small mouths. The reservoir remains very low at 1 percent full. Most anglers are now fishing near the dam.

Launching a boat on a trailer is likely impossible.

Gerber Reservoir is a large turbid reservoir. Bank access is good. Most of the reservoir is on BLM property.
