Fresno is 30% full, inflow is 206 cfs and outflow is 535 cfs outflow. Walleye fishing is fair. Water is low and warm. Concentrate you fishing to the southern portion of the reservoir for best results.

Nelson is 75% full, inflow is 263 cfs and outflow is 169 cfs. Walleye fishing is good. Best fishing is along the weed edges in 10’ to 15’ of water. Most methods are working, I prefer swim baits. When you get hooked on a weed, rip the bait hard to clean the weed off your bait and be prepared for a bite! Good fishing.
