Lakes & Reservoirs

Canyon Ferry Lake Sponsored by

Water Condition

Conditions : Canyon Ferry Reservoir: Trout fishing from shore has been good pretty much everywhere, mostly using night crawlers and marshmallows. Tossing cranks and spoons can be good on sunny days as well. Trolling for trout has been good throughout the reservoir, using bright colored cranks or flashy spoons, as well as cowbells and spinner rigs tipped with night crawlers. Walleye fishing has been very good lately, and a lot of bigger fish have been caught. Shore fishing for them has been decent around the Silos and White Earth, using floating jigs and leeches. Boat anglers have been having most of their success pitching jigs to shore, using some type of paddle tail plastic on their jigs. Trolling cranks has been productive in the mornings, while bottom bouncing is very good in the middle of the day. When bottom bouncing, use crawler harnesses with large, flashy blades to get their attention in the stained water. Perch have been caught while walleye fishing.
