Fresno and Nelson Reservoirs Fishing Reports by Brian Olson 2.8.24

Fresno is 22% full. Fish the basin area of the lake for best results. The dam portion is fishing the best. Try tip ups with salted minnows and/or jig. Nelson is 75% full. Walleye and perch fishing is good in the deeper basins. Northern fishing is good in the shallower areas. Tip ups with live minnows are working and use small jigs for perch.

Both reservoirs have lots of ice and are now snow covered. Beware of conditions caused by warmer temps especially near the pressure ridges. Be safe and good fishing.
