Canyon Ferry: Cool and wet weather this past week kept most anglers at home.  However, a few rainbow trout and yellow perch were caught from shore using worms near the Silos and Pond 4.  A handful of anglers had success trolling for walleye, using worm harnesses tipped with worms, near Hole-in-the-Wall in 20 to 35 feet of water.  Adam Strainer, FWP, Helena

Hauser:  Rainbows fishing is really good from both shore and boat.  Trolling cowbells around the Black Sandy-White Sandy area has been productive.  Using worms and marshmallows from shore at the Causeway Bridge is producing trout as well.  Walleye and perch fishing are slow with some being caught in the Causeway Arm on jigs and worms. Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena

Holter:  Rainbow fishing is good while trolling cowbells or crankbaits from Split Rock to Holter Dam.  Rainbows are being caught from shore on worms at Holter Lake Ramp. Perch fishing has slowed down, but a few are still being caught in small bays, around weedbeds and from the docks at the boat ramps in 8 to 12 feet of water while using jigs and worms.  Walleye fishing is slow.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena
