2000 Ranger tough to get in gear

I have a 5-speed Ranger (2WD) that is tough to get into first gear from neutral. It shifts fine up and down through the gears as you drive, but once you have come to a stop and put it in neutral it is tough to get it into first gear (same with reverse). My first suspicion is the slave cylinder. Any other opinions?

Is the clutch master cylinder reservoir full?

The reservoir is full, but I wouldn't be surprised if it is the original fluid. I just bought this a few months ago and am still working through the to-do list. Interesting enough, it seems the problem nearly goes away in colder weather.

It's bled by gravity, no bleeder valve on the slave cylinder.
