By angelamontana


Canyon Ferry:  Rainbow trout are being caught throughout the reservoir.  Shoreline anglers are having success at traditional reservoir access points using worms, spawn sacks or various nymph fly patterns. No report from boat anglers. Walleye are being caught on south end of the reservoir, primarily from shore, using worms or crankbaits. No report for yellow perch.  The reservoir is VERY low and boat access is limited.  Adam Strainer, FWP, Helena

Hauser:  Rainbows are being caught from shore at York Bridge while using flies or nymphs.  Boat anglers are catching rainbows while trolling crankbaits or cowbells around York Bridge, Black Sandy and in the Causeway.  Lake Helena is producing some walleye while trolling crankbaits. A few walleye and perch are being caught in the Causeway.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena

Holter:  Very good rainbow fishing can be found from shore around all the boat ramps while using egg pattern flies or wooly buggers.  Boat anglers are finding rainbows while trolling silver or perch colored crankbaits or cowbells along the shorelines throughout the reservoir.  Perch and walleye action is slow.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena
