Nelson is 50% full. 0 inflow and 299 cfs outflow. Walleye fishing is good. Fish along weed lines and break lines in 15’ to 18’. Bottom bouncers pulling spinners or slow death rigs with crawlers and jigs with swim baits are doing well. Most fishing is happening on northeast end of lake. The ramps are shallow so be prepared to wade. Pro tip: Use your electronics to find fish and structure. The new sidefinding technology is great.
