Canyon Ferry:  A few rainbows are being caught throughout the reservoir while trolling cowbells or crankbaits 20 feet deep in 40 to 50 feet of water.  The walleye bite is starting to take off with a number of fish being caught between the Silos and Ponds while using bottom bouncers with a worm or leech in 10 to 15 feet of water.  Walleye are also being caught between Duck Creek and Avalanche and from Hole in the Wall to White Earth.  Pitching chartreuse or silver jigs into shore has also been working.  Bowfishing for carp is still providing a lot of action throughout the reservoir.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena

Hauser:  The rainbow bite was pretty good this last weekend. A few have been picked up by boat anglers trolling cowbells and wedding rings around Black Sandy, York Bridge and Devil’s Elbow. The recent winds have kept most boaters off Lake Helena however walleye anglers are catching a few in the late evening hours from shore at the Causeway with slip bobbers and leeches or floating jigs. Trolling bottom bouncers and crawler harnesses and perch colored crankbaits in the Causeway Arm is producing a few walleye as well.  Chris Hurley, FWP, Helena

Holter:  The recent winds disrupted most of the fishing over the weekend however a few walleyes and perch were caught from the docks at the boat ramps while pitching jigs tipped with crawlers or leeches. A few rainbows are being caught early in the morning while trolling cowbells or ford fenders and wedding rings between Black Beach and Split Rock. The cowbell tactic is also working in the Canyon around the Mann Gulch area for some nice rainbows.  Chris Hurley, FWP, Helena
