Helena Area Reservoirs Fishing Report for the Week of 6.13.16
By angelamontana


Canyon Ferry:  Rainbow trout fishing has slowed a bit, but fish are being caught throughout the reservoir using worms and/or marshmallows from shore. Boat anglers are having success fishing for rainbows trolling cowbells, spoons and cranks, tipped with worms, in 10 to 30 feet of water. Walleye is starting to pick up and anglers are catching walleye on the south end and mid-reservoir tolling worm harnesses or cranks in 25 feet of water or less.  A few yellow perch are being caught from shore using worms or while trolling for walleye.  Adam Strainer, FWP, Helena
Hauser:  A few Rainbows are being caught from shore at Riverside while using worms or powerbait.  Rainbows are being caught by boat anglers while trolling cowbells around the White Sandy and Black Sandy area. Lake Helena has slowed up for walleye, but the Causeway arm is producing decent results while trolling bottom bouncers with a leech.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena
Holter:  Rainbow fishing is good between Split Rock and Holter Dam while trolling cowbells or perch colored crankbaits.  Shore fishing for rainbows is slow.  Perch are being caught everywhere on the reservoir, especially in 10 to 15 feet of water around weed beds and docks.  Some walleye are being caught around Split Rock, the clay banks and Gates of the Mountains on jigs and leeches in 15 feet of water.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena
