Open all year.

Targeting yellow perch is your best bet. Fish sampling by Bureau of Reclamation has showed incredible densities of yellow perch. Fishing is also fair 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 11 percent full.

Gerber Reservoir is a large turbid reservoir. Bank access is good. Launching boats might be impossible.

Most of the reservoir is on BLM property.
