Fresno is 22% full. For best results fish the remaining basin areas, near the dam may be your best bet. Nelson is 75% full. I fished there on Monday targeting perch in about 30+’. Fishing was good but catching was slow. There were several fishermen out spread across the reservoir. Lots of ice on both bodies, be cautious around the pressure ridges and gas pockets.

There is a report of a utv finding a gas pocket on Nelson, the occupants got out but their machine is in about 25’ of water. Be safe!
