Canyon Ferry:  Rainbow fishing has been slow, but boat anglers are catching a few using cowbells or spoons, tipped with worms, near the dam and shore anglers are having some success using worms near White Earth and Hellgate Bay. Walleye action has been fair around the Silos, Goose Bay, and Hellgate Bay trolling worm harnesses tipped with worms.  A few perch are being caught by anglers while searching for walleye.  Shore anglers are catching a few walleye on the South end of the reservoir using worms and/or jigs (standard and floating) tipped with worms.  Adam Strainer, FWP, Helena

Hauser:  Rainbow fishing has slowed up some with a few trout being caught from shore at the Causeway Bridge and Riverside while using worms or wooly buggers. Boat anglers are finding better success for rainbows while trolling cowbells around the White Sandy/Black Sandy area.  A few walleye are being caught in the Causeway and below Canyon Ferry Dam.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena

Holter:  Rainbow fishing is fair while trolling crankbaits or cowbells throughout the lower reservoir from Split Rock to Holter Dam.  A few rainbows are being caught from shore at Departure Point while using worms. Perch fishing is good around Cottonwood Creek, Mann Gulch at the Sleeping Giant while using jigs and worms in 12 to 20 feet of water.  A few walleye are being caught mixed in with the schools of perch.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena
