By angelamontana

Posted: July 7, 2014

Canyon Ferry: Rainbow trout are being caught throughout the reservoir. Shoreline anglers are catching fish using worms and/or marshmallows at traditional access points. Boat anglers are catching some rainbows trolling attractors, tipped with worms, in 5 to 30 feet of water. The walleye bite continues to be great throughout the reservoir. Anglers are doing well trolling in 10 to 45 feet of water using worm harnesses (orange, green and pink), tipped with worms or leeches, or while vertical jigging bay points. Yellow perch are being caught while seeking out walleye. Adam Strainer, FWP, Helena

Hauser: Rainbows are being caught trolling cowbells or light colored crankbaits anywhere between Black Sandy and Lakeside. Shore fishing is fair while using worms or Power bait around Black Sandy. Walleye are being caught in the Causeway on perch colored crankbaits or bottom bouncers and a leech or worm. Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena

Holter: Good rainbow fishing continues for those trolling cowbells throughout the reservoir; especially from Split Rock to Holter Dam. Small perch are being caught throughout the reservoir in small bays and around the boat docks. Walleye are being caught around Split Rock, Cottonwood Creek and the bays by Holter Dam. Most walleye are being caught on bottom bouncers and a worm. Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena
