We present a nucleon structure analysis including the charges of isovector dimension-three operators as well as the forward matrix elements of twist-2, dimension-four operators. Computations are performed on CLS ensembles with $N_f=2+1$ Wilson fermions, covering four values of the lattice spacing and pion masses down to $M_\pi \approx 200\,\mathrm{MeV}$. Several source-sink separations (typically $\sim 1.0\,\mathrm{fm}$ to $\sim 1.5\,\mathrm{fm}$) allow us to assess excited-state contaminations. Results on each ensemble are obtained from simultaneous two-state fits including all observables and all available source-sink separations with the mass gap as a free fit parameter. Finally, the chiral and continuum extrapolation is performed to extract physical results.
