Canyon Ferry:  Rainbow trout fishing has been fair from shore using worms or while trolling spoons or cowbells, tipped with night crawlers, in 10 to 30 feet of water. Walleye fishing slowed down this past week due to cooler temperatures in the region.  Successful anglers are catching walleye in 20 to 45 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.  A few yellow perch are being caught on the south end of the reservoir from shore using worms.  Adam Strainer, FWP, Helena

Hauser:  Rainbow fishing is good 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.  Walleye and perch fishing are slow. Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena

Holter:  Rainbow fishing is very good while trolling cowbells tipped with a worm or most any type of spoon in the lower reservoir from Split Rock to Holter Dam. A few rainbows are being caught from shore at Departure Point and Black Beach on worms. Perch and walleye fishing are slow.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena
