Columbia River Fishing Report August 2nd, 2019

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports and Forecast August 2nd, 2019

Clackamas River Fishing Report – I’d call the ODF&W report quite accurate so how can I top that. See for yourself, the agency is already trying to instill excitement for what is likely to be a robust fall coho return. I couldn’t agree more.
