Canyon Ferry:  Walleye action continues to be really good.  Walleye, perch and rainbows are all being caught on bottom bouncers or crankbaits.  Most action has been mid-reservoir from White Earth to Hellgate.  Purple, red, silver and chartreuse are the best colors with worms or leeches working equally well.  Shore fishing has been slow for all species. Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena

Hauser A few Walleyes are being picked up mostly during the late evening hours around Eldorado Bar, in the Causeway Arm and around Dana’s Point. Most walleye anglers are using various jigs, slip bobber setups with leeches, or trolling bottom bouncers and crawler harnesses. A few rainbows continue to be picked up mostly early in the morning while trolling cowbells and spinner combinations between Black Sandy and the Powerlines.  Chris Hurley, FWP, Helena

Holter Walleye and perch action continues to be good during the morning or late evening hours around Mann Gulch, Cottonwood Creek, the Clay Banks, and other points and weed beds throughout the reservoir. Using various jigs, slip bobber setups with leeches, or trolling bottom bouncers with white, chartreuse, or orange spinner blades has been working well. A few rainbows continue to be caught throughout the reservoir during the early morning or late evening hours while trolling various flashers with a spinner combination and a crawler around 25 feet down in the water column.  Chris Hurley, FWP, Helena
