Water Temps Are Increasing Fast

Gerber Reservoir - Bonanza, OR (Klamath County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Open all year.

Water temperatures are increasing fast. Targeting yellow perch is your best bet. Fish sampling by Bureau of Reclamation has showed incredible densities of yellow perch. Fishing is also good for crappie and brown bullhead catfish. A good place to start is the Ben Hall Creek arm of the reservoir near the boat dock. Use small hooks and bait for the perch as most are small sized with small mouths. The reservoir is 29 percent full. Crappie fishing is likely to be slower than in previous years.

Gerber Reservoir is a large turbid reservoir. Bank access is good. Boats can be launched as well at the Ben Hall Campground area. There is a nice concrete ramp and dock.

Most of the reservoir is on BLM property.
