By angelamontana

Posted: June 8, 2015

Canyon Ferry:  Rainbow trout are being caught from the dam to the south end of the reservoir. Shoreline anglers are having success near the outhouse, Duck Creek Bay, and around the Silos using nymphs, night crawlers or spinning gear.  Boat anglers are catching rainbows while trolling Needlefish or cowbells in 5 to 25 feet of water.   Walleye fishing is picking up on the south end of the reservoir while trolling bottom bouncers with green or orange Smiley blades.  Crankbaits are also working well.   Adam Strainer, FWP, Helena

Hauser:  Rainbows are being caught from shore at Black Sandy and Riverside while using worms or powerbait.  Trolling cowbells around White Sandy has produced good rainbow catches as well.  Walleye are being caught in Lake Helena while trolling perch or silver colored crankbaits.  The Causeway is producing some walleye on jigs or bottom bouncers and worms.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena

Holter:  Rainbow fishing continues to be good throughout the reservoir, especially between Split Rock and Holter Dam while trolling cowbells or perch colored crankbaits.  Shore fishing for rainbows is slow.  Some walleye are being caught around Split Rock, Cottonwood Creek and Gates of the Mountains on jigs and leeches.  Perch are being caught everywhere on the reservoir, especially in 10 to 15 feet of water.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena
