Fresno is 41% full, inflow is 501 cfs and outflow is 803 cfs. Walleye fishing is fair. Fish the main lake points in 15’ to 20’ of water. Try leeches on slip bobbers, it can really be fun and productive.

Nelson is 78% full, 0 inflow and outflow is 164 cfs. Walleye fishing is good. All methods especially swim baits on the weed lines are producing.  Also, try live minnows on bottom bouncers in the same areas. Again both reservoirs are better during low light periods. Good fishing.
