Canyon Ferry Reservoir offers excellent fishing opportunities for rainbow trout, perch, ling, and walleye, with 33,500 surface acres of water and 96 shoreline miles. Concrete boat ramps, campgrounds, day-use areas, shelters, swimming, and three marinas are also available. Click here for recreation information.

The Goose Bay Marina boat ramp at Canyon Ferry Reservoir will remain closed through the 2015 recreation season. The boat ramp is within the Goose Bay Marina construction zone and needs to remain closed to the public for safety reasons. Reclamation is planning for the Marina to be operational for the 2016 recreation season.

Canyon Ferry Reservoir is located approximately 20 miles east of Helena. Take Highway 12 south for 10 miles, turn east on Highway 287, and then it is approximately 8 miles to the dam (see detailed area map below).
