There is very little moss build up on the banks, the current in the mendota tears it out when the flow picks up and it will only stop for a couple of days at a time .the only minnows I have seen here are so small they cant bite a hook. Luckily the bait stores in tracy carry live baits.The cali duct around here is very clean as well, went to avenal and buttonwillow areas earlier this year and was surprised at the amount of moss.
