The reservoir is 38 percent full

Gerber Reservoir - Bonanza, OR (Klamath County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Fish sampling by Bureau of Reclamation this year showed incredible densities of yellow perch and some larger crappie. Use small hooks and bait for the perch as most are small with smallmouths.‌

Fishing should be improving for brown bullhead and yellow perch. Best place to fish for perch is at the north boat ramp. Near the Barnes Valley Boat ramp can also be worth a try if lake levels are high enough. Crappie fishing seems to be slowing as many crappie moved offshore. Fishing was hit or miss this year. Crappie fishing near the Creek channels can be good. ‌

The reservoir is 38 percent full. Call the Klamath Falls BLM office for updated information. A higher lake level improves the crappie fishery.‌
