Canyon Ferry:  Rainbows are being caught on various colored rapalas around Confederate, Goose Bay and Cemetery Island.  A few rainbows are being caught from shore on worms.   Walleyes are being caught throughout the reservoir with the best action being around the Silos and between Confederate and Duck Creek.  Most walleye anglers are trolling bottom bouncers or slow-death rigs with a worm or various colored crankbaits.  A few perch are being picked up on the south end as well.  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 fishing

Hauser Trolling cowbells and wedding ring combos between York Bridge and Black Sandy has been producing some nice rainbows and shore anglers are catching a few below Canyon Ferry Dam near Riverside Campground while using crawlers and a marshmallow. A few walleyes and an occasional perch are being caught in the Causeway Arm while pitching various colored jigs and leeches. Carp shooting with archery equipment has been popular lately with lots of fish in the warmer bays.  Chris Hurley, FWP, Helena

Holter Good numbers of Rainbows are being picked up between Black Beach and Split Rock while pulling various colored Rapalas or cowbell setups. Walleye are being picked up in the small bays inside the canyon near the Gates of the Mountains and along the Clay Banks on the lower end on the reservoir while vertical jigging with worms or leeches. A few perch are being caught around the public boat docks and shallow weed beds while pitching smaller jigs tipped with crawlers.  Chris Hurley, FWP, Helena
