Helena Area Reservoirs Fishing Report for the Week of 5.25.15
By angelamontana


Canyon Ferry: Rainbows are still being caught throughout the reservoir. Shoreline anglers are having success at traditional access points using worms or flies. Boat anglers are catching rainbows while trolling Needlefish or cowbells.   Walleye fishing continues to be slow with some action occurring around the silos while trolling bottom bouncers or rapalas.  Adam Strainer, FWP, Helena
Hauser:  Rainbow action has picked up again with anglers finding trout while trolling crankbaits around White Sandy.  A few rainbows are being caught from shore at Black Sandy and Riverside on worms.  Walleye are being caught in the Causeway on jigs or bottom bouncers and worms. Lake Helena was slow as it appears most walleye have moved into the Causeway.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena
Holter:  Rainbow fishing continues to be good throughout the reservoir, especially around Split Rock and Black Beach while trolling cowbells.  Shore fishing for rainbows is slow.  Walleye fishing is improving with anglers finding success around Cottonwood Creek, the Clay Banks and Split Rock.  Using jigs in 10 to 15 feet of water has been the best bet for walleye.  The best perch action was in 20 to 25 feet of water while using worms.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena
