Boaters heading to Canyon Ferry Reservoir this weekend will find two open ramps with decontamination stations.
With ice still covering some of the reservoir, the boat ramp at the Silos on the southwestern part of the reservoir, and the Shannon Boat Ramp on the north end, will be open for use with decontamination stations set up on site.
“Spring Aboard” and take a boating education course this week. A Montana motorboat operator's safety certificate for youth and adults is available through a home study course or online boating courses.
Online course venders Boat Ed and Boater Exam are offering a discount March 19-25. The Boat US Foundation course is always free.
Owners of motorboats, sailboats or personal watercraft need to get new, free 2017-2020 validation decals for their watercraft soon. The current blue decals expired Feb. 28. Boaters who have permanently registered their boats, sailboats, or PWC must still obtain two free boat validation decals every three years at FWP regional and area offices or online.
