By angelamontana


Canyon Ferry:  Rainbow trout fishing has picked up from shore using worms or while trolling spoons or cowbells, tipped with night crawlers, in 10 to 20 feet of water. Walleye fishing has been fair in 20 to 35 feet of water from Duck Creek Bay to the Dam trolling worm harnesses tipped with night crawlers or leeches.  Jigging bay points, mid-reservoir to the dam, also continues to produce walleye.  Yellow perch are being caught, both trolling and from shore, using worms.  Adam Strainer, FWP, Helena

Hauser:  Rainbow fishing is good around Black Sandy and the mouth of the Causeway while trolling cowbells tipped with a worm.  Rainbows are being caught from shore at the Causeway Bridge area while using worms, Powerbait or Wooly Buggers.  A few small walleye and perch are being caught in the Causeway on jigs with a leech or worm. Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena

Holter:  Rainbow fishing is very good while trolling cowbells tipped with a worm or Rock N’ Rolls in the lower reservoir from Split Rock to Holter Dam. A few rainbows are being caught from shore at Departure Point on worms. Perch action has slowed up a bit but anglers are still catching fish in 15 to 18 feet of water in bays or off of the boat docks at Holter Lake and Log Gulch ramps. Walleye fishing is slow with a few being caught mixed in with the schools of perch.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena
