Fresno is full of water. Surface temp mainly in the forties. The clarity is stained. There was some floating ice Tuesday morning but it later disappeared. Fishing for me on Tuesday and Wednesday was slow. The few fish and bites I got came from 5’ – 10’ of water. I was throwing Gulp minnows on 1/8 oz jigs.

Nelson ditch, again, is flowing, the reservoir is 68 % full. As of Wednesday at 4 pm, it was still iced over. It’s probably open now with yesterday’s wind.
