Fresno Reservoir has 12”-15” of ice. Walleye fishing has been good on the main lake points in 15’-20’ of water. Different jigging technics have been working well. Tip ups with salted minnows are also working. Nelson Reservoir has 16” and more ice in most places. Walleye fishing is good along weed lines, points and humps in 15’-25’ of water. Tip ups with line minnows work well. Also jigging technics work well. Perch fishing is slow, fish the deeper basin areas. There is a lot of snow on both reservoirs so getting around on them may be tuff.
