Planning on using Canyon Ferry?

New decontamination procedures now in effect

Last fall, invasive mussel larvae were discovered in Canyon Ferry reservoir. That means that recreationists using Canyon Ferry should now use extreme caution, and be sure to decontaminate all equipment before using it in another water body, in order to avoid spreading the mussels.

At this time, FWP has opened two boat ramps on the reservoir, and is mandating decontamination for all boats leaving the reservoir and planning to use a waterbody other than Canyon Ferry.

There is a program for local recreationists to get certified as a “local boater” so that you can skip the decontamination line and use other designated boat ramps on the lake, as long as you only use your vessel in Canyon Ferry.  To Become a local boater Visit This Page.
