Helena Area Reservoirs Fishing Report 10.9.18
By angelamontana

Canyon Ferry:  Fishing continues to be slow throughout the reservoir.  A few rainbow trout are being caught from shore using worms or trolling cowbells, tipped with worms, throughout the reservoir.  No report for yellow perch and walleye, however, trolling worm harnesses in 20-35 feet of water this time of year produces the best results.  Adam Strainer, FWP, Helena

Hauser:  Great rainbow fishing can be found while trolling cowbells or spoons around White Sandy and the Causeway.  Shore fishing is also productive for rainbows at the Causeway Bridge and below Canyon Ferry Dam on worms, Powerbait or Wooly Buggers.   A few walleye are being caught below Canyon Ferry Dam and in the Causeway on jigs with a worm, especially at night or early morning.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena

Holter:  Rainbow fishing is good while trolling cowbells in the lower reservoir from Split Rock to the dam and in the canyon by Gates of the Mountains.  Rainbows are being caught from shore at Departure Point and Log Gulch while using worms. Perch and walleye fishing were really slow this past weekend.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena
