By angelamontana

Canyon Ferry:  Rainbow trout continue to be caught throughout the reservoir using worms and/or marshmallows from shore. Boat anglers are having success fishing for rainbows trolling smiley blades, tipped with worms, or cranks in 10 to 20 feet of water. Walleye fishing picked up this past week and anglers are catching walleye mostly on the south end of the reservoir tolling worm harnesses or cranks in 20 feet of water or less.  A few yellow perch are being caught while searching for walleye.  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 or bottom bouncers.  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.
