Canyon Ferry Lake Sponsored by
Date 20-Oct-14
Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : Canyon Ferry Reservoir: Fishing is still good, especially with the dropping water temperatures. Walleye fishing has been good mid-reservoir while trolling bottom bouncers and crawler harnesses or slow death rigs anywhere from 25-40 feet deep. Jigging has been productive as well, especially on the deep drop offs. Perch have been caught while jigging these deep drop offs as well. Trout fishing is great on the north end of the reservoir. Shore fishing is picking up with crawlers and marshmallows or casting spoons and crankbaits. Fly fishermen are getting trout on leeches, calibaetis nymphs, and prince nymphs both at the sandbar near Yacht Basin and at Magpie Bay.
