Canyon Ferry Reservoir water levels are rising, which is heating up the business

MTN News last spoke with Jewett right before the Memorial Day holiday, the delayed runoff to the Madison, Jefferson and Gallatin rives had him nervous for the start of the summer boating season.

“It’s refreshing. There’s a lot of people out, there’s a lot of boats on the water, and the people are on their way,” said Jewett.

“I saw the forecast, and it is looking great, and I know we are pretty booked for the weekend, so it’s coming,” said Jewett.

The Canyon Ferry Reservoir is at nearly 83 percent of full pool, and all of the boat launches on the lake are open, leaving Jewett very excited for summer festivities to begin at the RV, Boat Launch, and docks.

Story Highlights

  • “It took a long time to come in because of the cold spring, but once it did, it came in swiftly.” “Our docks were still in the mud a week or ten days ago, but as you can see, it came in fairly nicely,” said Lukas Jewett, owner of Kim’s Marina.

  • But business, like the water level in Canyon Ferry is up, and like much of the snow, Jewett’s concerns for the water seem to be melting away, and now he is awaiting temperatures to warm up.
