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 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 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 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 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 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 and Sandy River Fishing Reports and Forecast June 7th, 2019

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 and Sandy River Fishing Reports May 17th, 2019

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…

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…

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 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…
