Clackamas River Report
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Summer steelhead and spring Chinook can now be found throughout the river. Anglers have had better luck targeting spring Chinook lower in the system. Both summers and springers have been recycled from the hatchery and released in the lower river.
Anglers would do best to check river levels before heading to the river. Fresh fish should be entering the system with each passing rain event for the next several months.
Though fishing effort has decreased over the last couple weeks, as the river has been on the drop, anglers have been consistently finding fish near the mouth of Dog Creek at the
USGS hydrological data readings from the Estacada gauge near Milo McIver State Park. Hydrologic data and river forecasts can also be accessed on the NOAA/National Weather Service NW River Forecast Center -- NW River Forecast Center.
