Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports – April 19th, 2019

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports – April 19th, 2019

Clackamas River Fishing Report – The Clackamas is just now coming into fishable shape and boats have been pursuing both salmon and steelhead in the lower reaches of the river. A small hogline graced the mouth of the Clackamas for the last few days, in hopes of finding a spring Chinook entering the much cleaner…

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports April 12th, 2019

Clackamas River Fishing Report – As you can see, it hasn’t been a productive week on the Clackamas: We’re still over the bank on the Clackamas so there’s very little to report from this system. I did glean one piece of information from a PGE biologist today; when the Clackamas was fishing good a few…

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports and Forecast April 5th, 2019

Clackamas River Fishing Report – With very little pressure, and the fact we’re still in peak season on the Clackamas, late arriving winter steelhead should still be a viable option for Clackamas River anglers. There have been recent reports of fairly good fishing, but I didn’t witness it on last weekend’s float. We were fishing…

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports and Forecast March 29th, 2019

Clackamas River Fishing Report – Recent reports from the Clackamas are rumored to be good fishing. With the fleet largely focused on Willamette River spring Chinook, the river is relatively empty, yet fair catches of steelhead seem to be present. The ODF&W recreation report backed up these rumors. From ODF&W: “There’s no good reason not…

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports March 22nd, 2019

Clackamas River Fishing Report – Water conditions improved this week, with warmer temperatures and increasing snow-melt. Although with snow-melt comes colder water, the increase in flow was most welcome. It has impacted the metabolism of the fish already in the system however. Interest is peaking and success rates should be on the increase as we are…

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports and Forecast March 15th, 2019

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Report Continued cold, dry weather is still hampering steelhead success on the Clackamas and Sandy Rivers. It’s a bit past peak on the Sandy, but hatchery fish should still be available, and Clackamas River anglers are still struggling for consistent success, but we’re just now entering peak season. Sandy River…

Clackamas River Fishing Report – It’s just plain cold out there! Clackamas fishing has held up in the recent week. Although it’s been sporadic (as steelheading always is), it’s been somewhat consistent in producing fair chances for savvy anglers. Boaters working from Feldheimer’s to Carver have been taking fish on jigs, beads and plugs this week.…

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports and Forecast March 1st, 2019

Clackamas River Fishing Report – It’s been a good week for Clackamas River steelheaders. Predictably, steelhead surged into the Clackamas River this week and catches have been good. Fish have been spread throughout the river and a variety of tactics are taking fish. Sidedrifters, bobber doggers, plug pullers and bobber and jig fishers have all been…

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports and Forecast February 22, 2019

Clackamas River Fishing Report – The Clackamas showed some promise over the weekend, after coming off a nice river rise and a slow drop due to the slow snow-melt from the cold weather front. Saturday produced good results for anglers, with one guide boat reporting 6 fish from the metro favorite. It was an ideal scenario,…

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports February 15th, 2019

Clackamas River Fishing Report – Like the Sandy, the Clackamas spiked and should be on the drop, barring any warm, wet rain event in the very near future. That said, fishing remains challenging on this system, it’s big water to begin with, even harder when on the rise and still colored up. Anglers weren’t too…

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports February 8th, 2019

Clackamas River Fishing Report – It’s been a cold week on the Clackamas, and when cold weather sets in, it’s not very fun for steelhead to bite, which happens to be the case this week on the Clack. Fish are present in the watershed, but the low, clear water has them slow to move, both upstream…

Faraday Lake is a 25-acre reservoir created by an…

Clackamas River Fishing Report – Although traffic remains somewhat subdued on the Clackamas, action is picking up. It’s high time for more fish to show here, and they are. One guide reported hooking 5 fish last week, bringing 3 to the boat. That powerboat guide was working the water downstream of Carver, while driftboats are busily…

Clackamas River Fishing Report – More fish are starting to show on the Clackamas. It’s not a wide open fishery just yet, but knowledgeable anglers are finding consistent results, some nice broodstock fish too. The upper reaches are producing fair results, from Feldhiemer’s downstream. The most popular reach remains  Barton to Carver however, and for good reason.…

Clackamas River Fishing Report – It’s been a slow week on the Clackamas, but persistent anglers are finding a few in the cold waters of the Clackamas. The river has been low, pushing fish into hiding, and making them somewhat uninspired. I floated the river on Monday, from Barton to Carver, going biteless, fishing as…
