Tiber, Fresno, Nelson Fishing Report 7/15
By angelamontana

Posted: July 15, 2022

Tiber is 100% full. 895 cfs coming in and 1264 cfs leaving. Walleye fishing is good. Fish are being caught from 2’ to 18’ on jigs, crank baits and bottom bouncer rigs. Fishing is good through out the system except in the river muddy areas.

Fresno is 57% full with 567 cfs coming in and 504 cfs leaving. Walleye fishing is excellent. Fish are being caught from 10’ to 18’ along weed lines and points. Most fishing is between Browns Bay and the dam. My favorite presentation now is a leech on a slip bobber, anchored on either main point at Kiehns Bay.

Nelson is 67% full with 295 cfs coming in and 0 leaving. Walleye fishing is good. Most fishing is on the northeast half of the reservoir. Fish are being caught from 15’ to 35’ along the weed lines and drop offs. The main presentation is bottom bouncer and spinner or slow death rigs. Pro tip: trust your electronics, if you’re not seeing fish move to where you mark them.
