Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports and Forecast January 17th, 2020

Clackamas River Fishing Report – Anglers are in the know, that Clackamas River steelhead return a bit later than the Sandy River steelhead. That may be part of the reason why traffic is so light on the Clackamas, nevermind the fact that fishing is slow to start. Most steelheaders run the Barton to Carver reach…

Willamette River Fishing Report January 17th, 2020

Willamette River Fishing Report and Forecast – Big, brown and not very fishy this week. I’m not sure anyone fished the high, roily water and if they did, they certainly spent some time dodging debris.

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports and Forecast January 10th, 2020

Clackamas River Fishing Report – The Clackamas is just now coming into fishable shape. That said, the presence of steelhead has been far from robust.

Columbia River Fishing Report January 10th, 2020

With the commercial crabbing fleet on the water, there isn’t much room for success for sport crabbers this weekend.
