Canyon Ferry Rainbow trout are being caught on the north end of the reservoir trolling spoons or crankbaits tipped with a worm. A few walleye and yellow perch are being caught throughout the south end and mid reservoir trolling worm harnesses, tipped with worms or leeches, or crankbaits. Rainbows, walleye, and perch are being caught from shore throughout the reservoir using jigs tipped with worms.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena

Hauser:  Shore anglers are still catching a few rainbows here and there around York Bridge and Black Sandy areas. Most have been doing well using leech patterns or night crawlers and marshmallows or Power Bait. Walleyes and a few rainbows are being caught at the Causeway from shore. Floating jigs or slip bobber fishing is working well. The Causeway Arm is starting to produce a few walleyes as well with the same techniques. Lake Helena is still producing a few walleyes. Various cranks or crawler harnesses seem to be working well.  Chris Hurley, FWP, Helena

Holter:  Rainbows continue to be picked up near shore at Gate of the Mountains and the BLM boat ramp areas. Successful shore anglers are doing well with leech patterns, Power Bait or plain worms and marshmallows. Boat anglers are catching a few rainbows while trolling cowbells with a crawler trailer. Walleye anglers have been catching a few while vertical jigging in the canyon.  Chris Hurley, FWP, Helena
