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.

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 and Sandy River Fishing Reports May 3rd, 2019

Clackamas River Fishing Report – With the heavy focus on the Willamette River, the Clackamas remains relatively void of effort for steelhead anglers. It’s still too early for spring Chinook. Steelheaders didn’t have a lot of competition and there remains fair numbers of wild winter steelhead and some summer steelhead as well. The upper reaches…
