Canyon Ferry:  Rainbow trout fishing continues to be good.  Fish are being caught from the dam to the south end of the reservoir. Shoreline anglers are having success near the outhouse, Duck Creek Bay, and around the Silos using worms and/or marshmallows.  Boat anglers are catching rainbows throughout the reservoir while trolling Needlefish, cowbells, and worm harnesses in 5 to 25 feet of water.   Walleye fishing is becoming more consistent on the south end of the reservoir while trolling bottom bouncers with worm harnesses (pink, green and white) or crankbaits (orange or green).  A few yellow perch are being caught while searching for walleye.   Adam Strainer, FWP, Helena

Hauser:  Trolling cowbells or bright colored crankbaits around the White Sandy-Black Sandy area has been producing rainbows.  Rainbows are being caught from shore at Riverside while using worms or powerbait.  Walleye fishing in Lake Helena has slowed down considerably as the lake is getting full of weeds. The Causeway is producing some walleye on jigs or bottom bouncers and worms.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena

Holter:  Rainbow fishing is good in the lower reservoir, especially between Split Rock and Holter Dam while trolling cowbells, crankbaits or a variety of lures.  Shore fishing for rainbows is slow.  Walleye are being caught from Cottonwood Creek to Holter Dam on jigs and leeches or bottom bouncers in 10 to 15 feet of water.  The clay banks have produced the most consistent results for walleye.  Perch are being caught everywhere on the reservoir.
