Helena Recreation Report by Bob Ward’s Sports and Outdoors (1.16.15)
Canyon Ferry: Ice has been pretty solid by the silos. Ice is good from Silos boat ramp to about a mile down toward the duck ponds. The north end is ice is still a bit spotty but there are some areas that are sitting on 5” but be wary of open water as well. The north-end has some good early morning and late evening to night fishing for ling and walleye.
Holding Reservoir: has solid ice and people have been doing pretty well with Perch in 10-25 feet of water. Bites are infrequent but if you’ve got a day out on the ice you’ll have enough Perch for a good meal.
Holter Lake: also has some good ice and the perch bite is on we’ve had a couple of 50+ perch days already in the last week.
