Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports October 11th, 2019

Clackamas River Fishing Report – The Clackamas remains low and clear, but anglers are showing up in greater numbers, anticipating a fair return of coho in the coming weeks. Low water has kept fish from moving fast so fish are well distributed throughout the Clackamas, downstream of Eagle Creek. Eagle Creek itself is an option,…

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports and Forecast August 30th, 2019

Clackamas River Fishing Report – We’re still on the forefront of the fall coho return, but early fish seem to be some of the most receptive to bite.

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports August 9th, 2019

Clackamas River Fishing Report – Summer steelhead on the Clackamas remains an option, albeit a poor one. Spring Chinook are starting to exhibit their spawning colors and should be left alone in the dropping, clearing waters. They get enough grief from the rafters utilizing the river system this time of year. Look for summer steelhead…

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.

Clackamas River Fishing Report – Why reinvent the wheel? ODF&W describes it best (and we’ve been saying it most of the season. ODF&W says, “Fishing is still extremely slow on the Clackamas River due to poor steelhead and Chinook salmon returns. Couple that with low flows, rising temperatures, and clear water, and prospects grow even…

Clackamas River Fishing Report – At this point, I’m not sure why folks are still fishing the Clackamas. I can believe another week of no hatchery fish caught on the Clackamas, but this week, no summer steelhead were creel checked on the Clackamas by either boat or bank anglers. It’s a grim tale on this…
