Conditions : CLACKAMAS RIVER: Anglers have seen no change in fishing opportunities over the past week with poor conditions holding on and expected to stay this way for a few more days. Warm, dry weather continues to grip the region leading to low flows that have dropped even further, although water temperatures have declined a bit. Try fishing early or late in the day when the sun is off the water for increased chances of success. This will also help you avoid the summer rafting crowd. Despite the poor conditions Clackamas Hatchery has seen over 4,400 spring Chinook get back to the trap, more than meeting their production needs for the season. However movement of fish has slowed down considerably in the past couple of weeks.

Most of the summer steelhead and spring Chinook will be found above Barton and on up to Rivermill Dam. Look for springers to be holding in the cooler, deeper pools. The summer steelhead numbers have been less than stellar this year so hooking into one can be tough but there are a few decent looking fish around.

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 landowners properties.

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. Boaters beware that the low water conditions can make a few spots tough to maneuver through.

Aug. 24 shows river flows down at 637 cfs, a gauge reading of 10.31 feet and the water temperature at 64°
