Canyon Ferry:  Good rainbow action can be found on the north end from both shore and boat.  Shore anglers are having luck at the Outhouse on worms or marshmallows.  Anglers trolling jointed perch colored rapalas or spinners 100-150 yards offshore at the Outhouse are having great action.  From White Earth to the Silos boat anglers are finding rainbows as well.  Walleye and perch fishing were very slow this past weekend.  A few anglers are targeting carp and doing well from shore on nightcrawlers at Confederate Bay, Duck Creek and Pond 4. Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena

Hauser:  A few rainbows are being picked up around Black Sandy. Shore anglers have been doing well using power bait, egg sacks or night crawlers and marshmallows. Boat anglers are catching a few while trolling cowbells and wedding rings with a crawler trailer. The walleye bite is still good at Lake Helena. Boat anglers are doing well trolling chartreuse or gold colored crankbaits or bottom bouncers and leeches.  Chris Hurley, FWP, Helena

Holter:  Rainbows continue to be picked up near shore at Gates of the Mountains Log Gulch and Departure Point areas. Successful shore anglers are doing well with midge nymphs and leech patterns. Anglers using plain crawlers or egg sacks are picking up a few trout as well. Shore angling has been most productive as most rainbows are still favoring the shorelines. Boat anglers have reported that walleye and perch fishing has been fairly slow.  Chris Hurley, FWP, Helena
