Helena Recreation Report by Bob Ward’s Sports & Outdoors (3.18.16)
Holding Reservoir: Fishing is decent, we’d recommend Sweedish pimple tipped with maggots or corn from shore.
Canyon Ferry/Holter/Hauser: Ice is gone but maggots were still getting bites on Perch and Trout. Rainbows are starting to run so fishing should be pretty accessible from shore, we’d recommend spinners or jigs from shore.
Missouri River: With early March we have our winter midge hatch going on. So keep an eye out for them and bring your best midge patterns.
