Canyon Ferry:  Rainbow trout fishing continues to be good from shore using worms or while trolling spoons or cowbells, tipped with night crawlers, throughout the reservoir. Walleye fishing has picked up mid-reservoir with successful anglers trolling worm harnesses, tipped with night crawlers 15 to 25 feet of water.  Jigging bay points, mid-reservoir to the dam, continues to produce walleye.  Yellow perch are being caught, both trolling and from shore, using worms.  Adam Strainer, FWP, Helena
