Helena Recreation Report by Bob Ward’s Sports & Outdoors 3.24.17
Hunting: Spring Bear and Turkey are still a month out with Bear opening April 15th and Turkey on April 8th.
Fishing: IT IS A NEW LICENSE YEAR FOR FISHING-So swing on into Bob Wards for your 2017 Fishing license.
Canyon Ferry: Ice around the shoreline has pulled back a bit with the warmer weather. Lots of water on ice along the shoreline. With this warmer weather ice conditions are dangerous. There is open water along shorelines that will allow for some casting. Be cautious out there and pay close attention to ice conditions.
Hauser: With warmer weather this weekend and the amount of open water—I’d recommend staying on shore and fishing some open water holes. Stick to some spinners or try snap-jigging with some marshmallows. The fish will still be biting but you just need to find a safe way to get to them.
Missouri: BWOs are the ticket and will only get better as water temps begin to rise. So bring an assortment of BWOs out and come play this weekend in the warm weather—-the fish are biting.
