Canyon Ferry:  Anglers are catching rainbow trout throughout the reservoir. Shoreline anglers are catching fish, primarily using worms, spawn or spoons, at east shore and south end access points. Boat anglers are catching some rainbows trolling cowbells tipped with worms in 5 to 30 feet of water. The walleye has been excellent mid reservoir and good throughout the south end. Trolling in 15 to 35 feet of water, using crankbaits (orange, green or fire tiger) and worm harnesses (orange, green and pink), has been producing the most fish.  A number of yellow perch continue to be caught while chasing walleye.  Adam Strainer, FWP, Helena

Hauser:  A few rainbows are being caught while trolling cowbells around the Black Sandy area.  Good rainbow fishing can be found below Canyon Ferry Dam. Shore fishing has been good while using worms or marshmallows while boat fishing has been good while using Marabou jigs and leeches.   A few small walleye are being caught at the Causeway Bridge and in the Causeway Arm on bottom bouncers and a leech or small crankbaits.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena

Holter:  Good Rainbow fishing continues for those trolling cowbells throughout the reservoir.  Rainbows are being picked up from shore around Gates of the Mountains on worms.  Small perch are being caught throughout the reservoir in small bays and around the boat docks and a few walleye are mixed in with them.  Otherwise walleye fishing has been slow.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena
