Canyon Ferry:  Rainbows are being caught on spoons, cowbells or bottom bouncers from Goose Bay to Duck Creek and out from the Silos.  Walleyes are being caught between Hole in the Wall and the Silos and from Duck Creek to Pond 1.  Most walleye anglers are trolling bottom bouncers with a worm with a few being caught on crankbaits.  The reservoir continues to fill with a lot of water coming in from the Missouri River, so be on the watch for floating debris.  Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena

Hauser Rainbows are being picked up while trolling cowbells tipped with crawlers between Black Sandy and York Bridge. Using floating jigs or crawlers with marshmallows from shore at the Riverside Campground, the Causeway, and Black Sandy is also producing a few of rainbows. A few walleyes and perch are being caught in Lake Helena and the Causeway Arm while trolling bottom bouncers and crawler harnesses.  Chris Hurley, FWP, Helena

Holter Rainbows are being caught while using midge nymphs or leech patterns near the Gates of the Mountains and while pulling cowbells or Thomas lures on the lower end of the reservoir. Shore anglers are finding a few rainbows near Departure Point while using plain crawlers. Some nice walleye are being picked up in the canyon near the Gates of the Mountains while vertical jigging or pulling bottom bouncers and crawler harnesses. A few perch are being caught around the public boat docks on the lower end of the reservoir while pitching smaller jigs tipped with crawlers.  Chris Hurley, FWP, Helena
