Canyon Ferry: A few rainbows are being caught on the north end of the reservoir while trolling cowbells or crankbaits 20 to 30 feet deep. The walleye bite is improving with the best action being mid-reservoir from White Earth to Crittendon and Goose Bay to Hellgate. The best action is using bottom bouncers or slow death rigs in white, green or blue in 20 to 30 feet of water. Jigs with worms or leeches are also catching a few. An occasional perch is being caught. The carp spawn has slowed down considerably. Troy Humphrey, FWP, Helena

Hauser: A few rainbows are being picked up by boat anglers. Most are trolling cowbells and wedding rings around Black Sandy, York Bridge and Devil’s Elbow. Walleye anglers are catching a few in the late evening hours from shore at the Causeway with slip bobbers and leeches or floating jigs. Anglers vertical jigging or trolling bottom bouncers and crawler harnesses are doing pretty well in the Causeway Arm. Chris Hurley, FWP, Helena

Holter: A few walleyes and perch are being picked up by boat anglers around Cottonwood Creek. Most are having luck using slip bobbers and leeches or jigs and crawlers in shallow water. A few are also being picked up from the docks at the boat ramps while pitching jigs tipped with crawlers or leeches. A few rainbows are being caught 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
