By angelamontana

Canyon Ferry:  The rainbow trout bite continues to be good throughout the reservoir. Shoreline anglers are having success at traditional access points, primarily on the north end, using worms, spawn sacks or various bead head nymph patterns. Boat anglers are doing well throughout of the reservoir primarily trolling attractors at shallow depths. Fishing has been inconsistent, but good when the weather is warm, for walleye throughout the south end and at some locations mid-reservoir.  Some yellow perch are being caught while searching for walleye.  Adam Strainer, FWP, Helena

Hauser:  Rainbow fishing has slowed down.  A few are being caught at Riverside from shore on worms and trolling cowbells around York Bridge.  The Causeway and Lake Helena are producing small walleye while trolling crankbaits or pitching jigs.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena

Holter:  Good rainbow fishing can be found throughout the reservoir while trolling crankbaits or cowbells less than 10 feet deep.  A few rainbows are still being caught from shore at the ramps while using flies or worms.  A few walleye and perch are being caught around the Gates of the Mountains area and Log Gulch Bay.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena
