Helena Area Reservoirs Fishing Report for the Week of 4.27.15
By angelamontana

Posted: April 27, 2015

Canyon Ferry:  Rainbow trout fishing continues to be good throughout the reservoir. Shoreline anglers are having success at traditional access points, primarily on the north end, using worms, spawn sacks or various bead head nymph patterns. Boat anglers are doing fair on the north end of the reservoir while anchored and casting to shore or trolling attractors at shallow depths. Fishing has been mixed for walleye, but look for things to heat up this coming week with warm temperatures in the forecast.  Boat access is very good this year.  Adam Strainer, FWP, Helena

Hauser:  Rainbow fishing is very good from both shore and boat.  Shore fishing is producing good results at York Bridge while using flies and at Black Sandy and Riverside while using worms or spawn sacks.  Boat anglers are finding rainbows while trolling orange or gold crankbaits around White Sandy and Black Sandy.  Lake Helena is producing small walleye while trolling perch or blue & gray colored rapalas on calm days.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena

Holter:  Good rainbow fishing can be found while trolling crankbaits along the shorelines throughout the reservoir.  Rainbows are starting to move away from the ramps, but some action can still be found around Holter Lake Ramp and Log Gulch while using flies.  A few walleye and perch are being caught around the Gates of the Mountains area and Log Gulch Bay.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena
