Canyon Ferry:  Mid-reservoir and the north end are not producing many fish.  The best action is from the Silos to the Ponds for both rainbows and walleyes.  Rainbows are being caught out from the Silos on spoons, cowbells or crankbaits.  The walleye action is picking up around the Silos and from Duck Creek to Pond 1 while using crankbaits or bottom bouncers with a worm.  Reservoir water level is coming up and a lot of anglers are getting out.  Boats can be launched at Broadwater Bay, Goose Bay, Duck Creek and Chinamen’s.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena

Hauser Rainbow trout continue to be picked up near Riverside Campground, the Causeway, and Black Sandy while using Power Bait, plain crawlers, or casting spoons. Trolling cowbells and wedding ring combos or crankbaits out from Black Sandy, White Sandy, Devils Elbow and York Bridge is also producing good numbers of rainbows. A few walleyes and perch continue to be picked up in Lake Helena and the Causeway Arm while trolling crankbaits or bottom bouncers and crawler harnesses.  Chris Hurley, FWP, Helena

Holter Rainbows are being picked up while using floating jigs and crawlers, various flies, Power Bait, or spoons near the Gates of the Mountains, Holter Lake Campground and Departure Point. Good numbers of rainbows are also being found between Split Rock and the Dam while pulling cowbells and spinner combos or various crankbaits. Walleye and perch continue to show up just inside the canyon near the Gates of the Mountains, near Cottonwood Creek, and around most of the public boat docks on the lower end of the reservoir while trolling bottom bouncers and crawler harnesses or pitching jigs tipped with crawlers.  Chris Hurley, FWP, Helena
