Guess I will have to explore during the day again
Tracy blvd is a siphon on the mendota with a set of gates on the west side as well, too bad the gates are too hard to fish there. Down on the southern cali there are areas of grates the allow the water run out of the duct and into irrigation canals . Grates in those areas are big and hold bait fish behind the grate bars. Up in the mendota the grates are much smaller usally but there are a couple of good size grates that can be accessed,there is a grate at the farm right before that siphon that has given up a couple big fish.
