Helena Area Reservoirs Fishing Report for the Week of 6.22.15
By angelamontana


Canyon Ferry:  Rainbow trout fishing continues to be good throughout the reservoir.  Shoreline anglers are having success near the outhouse, Duck Creek Bay, and around the Silos using night crawlers.  Boat anglers are catching rainbows throughout the reservoir while trolling Needlefish, cowbells, and worm harnesses in 5 to 25 feet of water.   Walleye fishing has been good on the south end of the reservoir while trolling worm harnesses (pink, green and white) tipped with night crawlers or leeches and crankbaits (orange or green) are also producing walleye.  Some yellow perch are being caught throughout the south end of the reservoir.   Adam Strainer, FWP, Helena

Hauser:  Rainbows are being caught from Black Sandy to Devil’s Elbow while trolling cowbells or bright colored crankbaits. A few rainbows are being caught from shore at Riverside while using worms or powerbait.  The Causeway is producing some small 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 or Little Cleo’s.  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.  Perch are being caught everywhere on the reservoir, especially in 10 to 20 feet of water while using jigs and worms.
