Canyon Ferry:  Rainbow trout fishing has been best from shore at Kim’s Marina while fly fishing with a leech or bead head nymph or using a jig tipped with a worm.  Boat anglers are catching a few rainbows trolling lures tipped with a worm.  A few walleye and perch are being caught mid-reservoir and at Confederate Bay in less than 15 feet of water on jigs or worm harnesses.  Adam Strainer, FWP, Helena

Hauser:  Rainbow fishing has slowed down as they move offshore.  A few rainbows are being caught from shore at the York Bridge ramp on flies or egg sacks and at Riverside while drifting jigs or egg sacks.  Rainbow fishing is fair while trolling cowbells or rapalas around the Causeway and York Bridge.  Walleye are being caught in Lake Helena and a few perch and walleye are being caught in the Causeway.  Most walleye are being caught while trolling bottom bouncers or lures.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena

Holter:  Rainbow fishing from shore at the ramps has slowed down with a few being caught around Gates of the Mountains, Holter Lake Ramp and Log Gulch while using egg pattern flies or egg sacks.  Boat anglers are finding rainbows near the surface while trolling cowbells or rapalas in the lower reservoir around Split Rock and the clay banks.  Walleye and perch fishing are slow.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena
