Canyon Ferry: Rainbow trout fishing has been best from shore at Shannon, Duck Creek Bay, and Goose Bay fly fishing with a leech or bead head nymph or using a jig tipped with a worm. Boat anglers are catching a few rainbows mid-reservoir trolling cranks or lures. 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: A few rainbows are being caught from shore at York Bridge on flies and at Riverside while drifting jigs. Rainbow fishing is fair while trolling cowbells or rapalas around the Causeway and York Bridge. Small walleye are being caught in Lake Helena on bottom bouncers or rapalas. An occasional perch is being caught there as well. Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena

Holter: Rainbow fishing from shore at the ramps has slowed down. Boat anglers are finding rainbows while trolling cowbells or rapalas around Cottonwood Creek and in the lower reservoir around Split Rock and the clay banks. Walleye and perch fishing are slow. Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena
