No report for yellow perch.  Adam Strainer, FWP, Helena

Hauser:  Rainbows are being caught from shore below Canyon Ferry Dam on worms or drifting jigs with a worm. Rainbows are also being caught in the White Sandy/Black Sandy area while trolling cowbells.  Lake Helena is producing a few small walleye while trolling perch colored crankbaits or bottom bouncers.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena

Holter:  The rainbows have moved off the shoreline, but boat fishing has been very good.  Good catches are being reported around the Gates of the Mountains, Split Rock and Boat Loft while trolling nymphs, light colored crankbaits or cowbells.  A few perch and walleye are being caught in the canyon around Gates of the Mountains on jigs and worms.    Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena
