Helena Area Reservoirs Fishing Report for the Week of 6.29.15
By angelamontana


Canyon Ferry:  Anglers continue to have success for rainbow trout.  Shoreline anglers are doing well throughout using primarily worms and/or marshmallows.  Boat anglers are having success near the dam, Confederate Bay, and the Silos using night crawlers while trolling Needlefish, cowbells, and worm harnesses in 5 to 25 feet of water.   Walleye fishing has been good throughout the reservoir. South end anglers are trolling worm harnesses (pink, green and white) tipped with night crawlers or leeches.  Trolling crankbaits (orange or green) and jigging (pink and perch colored) bay points, mid-reservoir to the dam, has also been producing walleye. Yellow perch are being caught while searching for walleye throughout the south end of the reservoir.   Adam Strainer, FWP, Helena

Hauser:  Rainbows are being caught trolling cowbells between Black Sandy and Devil’s Elbow and while trolling crankbaits below Canyon Ferry Dam. Some rainbows are being caught from shore while using worms or Power bait around Riverside. Small walleye are being caught at the Causeway Bridge on jigs and in the Causeway Arm on bottom bouncers and a leech or worm.  Some walleye are also being caught around Riverside on jigs.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena

Holter:  Good rainbow fishing continues for those trolling cowbells or yellow and red crankbaits between Split Rock and Holter Dam.  An occasional rainbow is being picked up from shore around Gates of the Mountains on worms.  Walleye are being caught on jigs and leeches or bottom bouncers in 8 to 14 feet of water from Cottonwood Creek to Holter Dam.  Perch are being caught throughout the reservoir in small bays and around the boat docks in 10 to 20 feet of water while using jigs and worms.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena
