Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports August 23rd, 2019

Clackamas River Fishing Report – Nothing new on the Clackamas, anglers are still anxiously awaiting fall coho to return. We’re still 2 weeks away from any hope for success, but a robust return is likely. Until then, anglers remain focused on summer steelhead, which have returned in few numbers. Spring Chinook should be left alone.…

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports August 16th, 2019

Clackamas River Fishing Report – No guide in their right mind is fishing the Clackamas right now so we’ll rely on the ODF&W report to satisfy your wants and need; which isn’t a high bar on the Clackamas this year. Here is the ODF&W report: Fishing remains very slow on the Clackamas River due to…

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 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. From ODF&W: Fishing is still slow on the Clackamas River. Seasons…

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports July 26th, 2019

Clackamas River Fishing Report – With so little to write about on the Clackamas, we’ve gone to using the ODF&W information, which really isn’t all that bad. As you already know, we get a lot of our information from the professional fishing guide community, but no one in their right mind is doing that on…

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 and Sandy River Fishing Reports July 12th, 2019

Clackamas River Fishing Report – Still ho hum fishing here, NO hatchery spring Chinook reported, and slow, very slow fishing for summer steelhead as well. The rafter hatch is coming on however. River Mill Dam is passing fair numbers of wild spring Chinook, which is a good thing. The Guide’s Forecast – Continued low, clear…

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

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…

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports and Forecast June 28th, 2019

Clackamas River Fishing Report – Nothing has changed here, and it likely won’t for the foreseeable future. Spring Chinook remain non-existent and summer steelheading is challenging, but with the cooler weather, fish should be more motivated and rafters less so. Regardless, Clackamas River anglers are pretty deflated, but that could mean no competition on these…

Clackamas River Fishing Report – Another week of ZERO catch in the creel check for Clackamas River anglers. It’s almost comical at this point. A grand total of 6 wild spring Chinook have been recorded, just a few fish less than the summer steelhead also taken on the Clackamas. Just because I don’t have anything…

Clackamas River Fishing Report – As reported in the Fisheries Update section, a hatchery spring Chinook has yet to be recorded in the creel census this season. Nuff said about that, good luck. Summer steelhead action hasn’t been all that much better. There were a handful of summers reported last week, but so far from…

Clackamas River Fishing Report – Put simply, a grand total of 3 wild spring Chinook have been released, for 964 angler days on the river. I’m not sure I have to go any further than that, fishing SUCKS! ODF&W is trying to get production back on line, but between poor rearing conditions and sad outmigrating…

Clackamas River Fishing Reports – Week 4 with no spring Chinook recorded from the Clackamas River. I remember days where dozens were caught in just one evening at McIver Park 27 years ago… The springer run is already a bust here. Spring Chinook interest is already fading, for good reason. Summer steelhead anglers, at least…

Clackamas River Fishing Report – Another no fish week on the Clackamas. Not a single salmon or summer steelhead was recorded for the boat or bank fisheries. We may be approaching a disaster. The overall hatchery winter steelhead count back to the facility was about 800 fish, not a disaster, but far from robust. No…

Clackamas River Fishing Report – Once again, the Clackamas River creel report yielded no salmon or steelhead for boat and bank anglers last week. There are certainly fish of both species present, just not in good numbers. With the Willamette fishery drying up, and the fact we’re nearing peak season for the Clackamas River, at…
