Lakes & Reservoirs

Canyon Ferry Lake Sponsored by

Conditions : Canyon Ferry Reservoir: Trout fishing is good throughout the reservoir, either trolling cranks or cowbells. Look for the trout to be anywhere from 10-25 feet deep. Shoreline anglers are doing well on the north end using night crawlers and marshmallows. Walleye fishing has picked up lately, although there have been a lot of smaller ones caught. Fishing on the north end has been decent near Magpie and Cemetery Island throwing jigs or cranks in bays. The south end has been producing more numbers lately, mostly on bottom bouncers in 20-35 feet of water. Green and orange are good colors for crawler harnesses. Jigging in bays has been decent as well. Carp are everywhere in the bays and on shallow shorelines, so bow fishing has been great!
