Anglers are reminded that ice conditions can be extremely variable. Extreme caution should be used when accessing the ice.

Canyon Ferry: Rainbow trout continue to be caught near shore on the south end of the reservoir using ice jigs and flies tipped with worms or maggots. Yellow perch, and a few walleye, are being caught in 35 feet of water out from Hole-in-the-Wall using Hali jigs or Swedish Pimples tipped with maggots. Ice conditions have been reported at 14 to 16 inches from the south end of the reservoir to Confederate Bay and 10 inches near the dam. — Adam Strainer, FWP, Helena.
