Helena Area Reservoirs Fishing Report 10.23.17
By angelamontana


Canyon Ferry: Rainbow trout continue to be caught from shore using worms or spoons near the Outhouse, Confederate, and north of the Silos. Walleye and perch are being caught trolling cranks and worm harnesses throughout the south end and mid-reservoir in 15 to 45 feet of water. Adam Strainer, FWP, Helena

Hauser:  Rainbows are being caught from both shore and boat.  Trolling cowbells in the Causeway and around the Black Sandy-White Sandy area has been very productive .  Fishing from shore at the Causeway Bridge is also very good for rainbows while using worms, marshmallows or powerbait.  A few walleye are being caught in the Causeway while jigging.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena

Holter:  Rainbow fishing is very good from Split Rock to Holter Dam and around Gates of the Mountains while trolling cowbells or crankbaits. Rainbows are being caught from shore on worms or flies at Gates of the Mountains and Departure Point. Perch and walleye fishing are slow with a few being caught on jigs in deeper water.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena
