Conditions : CLACKAMAS RIVER: Some pretty decent rain over the past week once helped to move a few coho further up into the river with reliable reports of fish now holding above Carver. In spite of the rainfall the river is still running low and clear, with this trend continuing for the next several days. The river will remain a drift or pontoon boat fishery with conditions too low to try and navigate in a sled safely, so boaters beware of partially submerged boulders, gravel bars, and logs.

The boat fishery above Rivermill Dam is still producing an occasional fish with anglers finding some action on summer steelhead and a rare spring Chinook when working the water just above the log boom or trolling a bit further upstream from the dam. Boat anglers can access the lake from a boat ramp in McIver Park.

Over 620 hatchery springers have made it up into the PGE trap below North Fork Reservoir; these fish were previously being recycled back downstream to provide additional fishing opportunities but are now transported to Clackamas Hatchery for broodstock and future spawning. Wild spring Chinook have also made it to the trap with that number now exceeding 2,825 fish passed upstream.

A great summer steelhead run is continuing with over 2,250 hatchery summers reaching the North Fork Trap. A number of these fish were getting recycled downstream but recently they’ve been stocked into Faraday Lake for anglers to enjoy. Clackamas Hatchery at McIver Park has their water system back online and has had a large number of summer steelhead and over 900 Chinook worked this summer.

Good bank access for can be found in many locations along the river from Gladstone, Cross Park, Riverside Park, along Clackamas River Road, Carver, Barton, and McIver parks. Clackamas River Drive closely follows the river below Carver Park, but be sure to not trespass on private property. If you have a drift boat, you can put in at Riverside Park, Carver Park, Barton Park, Feldheimer’s off Springwater Road, and at both lower and upper McIver Park ramps.
