Fresno is 86% full. Inflow 1206 cfs & outflow 45 cfs. Some have had limited success, fish in 10’ to 15’ of water, slow death rigs are working.

Nelson is full. Walleye fishing remains good for some anglers. Northern fishing is really coming on. Best depth for me has been about 10’ using jigs. Lots of fishermen are using live bait. Plastics also work. Good luck & release the larger fish for the future spawn.
