Canyon Ferry:  Rainbow trout fishing continues to be good from shore using worms or while trolling spoons or cowbells, tipped with night crawlers, in 10 to 30 feet of water. Anglers are catching walleye in 20 to 35 feet of water from White Earth to Cemetery Island trolling worm harnesses tipped with night crawlers or leeches.  Jigging bay points, mid-reservoir to the dam, continues to produce walleye.  Yellow perch are being caught near the Silos, both trolling and from shore, using worms.  Adam Strainer, FWP, Helena

Hauser:  Rainbow action has been decent around Black Sandy and the mouth of the Causeway while trolling cowbells tipped with a worm.  Rainbows are being caught from shore around the Causeway Bridge while using worms or Powerbait.  A few small walleye and perch are being caught in the Causeway on jigs with a leech or worm. Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena

Holter:  Rainbow fishing is very good while trolling cowbells tipped with a worm or Thomas Lures in the lower reservoir from Split Rock to Holter Dam. A few rainbows are being caught from shore at Departure Point on worms. Perch action has slowed up a bit but anglers are finding them a bit deeper in 30 to 35 feet of water in bays.  Perch fishing around the docks has slowed down. Walleye fishing is slow with a few being caught mixed in with the schools of perch.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena
