My brother was out on the mendota and some guy fishing on top of the gates was ready to fight the water district employee when told to get off the gates . Could be contributing as well to the sheriff dept limiting access since they are the ones that have to respond out there. Slow fishing over the last couple of weeks but the ones caught have been in the 18 plus size with fewer little guys.next week will worm up a bit ,hope it picks up the bite.
