Conditions : CLACKAMAS RIVER: NOTICE: The Clackamas River is closed to fishing from the I-205 near High Rocks downstream to its confluence with the Willamette under a temporary closure implemented July 18. Under this closure, fishing for trout, steelhead and salmon in this area is prohibited. The remainder of the river remains open under statewide hours restrictions closing the Clackamas and other rivers after 2 p.m.

Cooler weather and precipitation brought some relief over the past week. However, warm, dry weather keeps its grip on the Pacific NW with low stream flows and high water temperatures. The Clackamas is down 2° following a light rainstorm that moved through the area over the past week but is still high at 65° with river flows at near record lows. Anglers shouldn’t expect any change now that it’s late-July, early-August so travel by sled is impossible and the few anglers out in drift boats or bank fishing will surely encounter a large flotilla of recreational rafters and tubers.

Fishing conditions are very challenging and will hold this way for the foreseeable future. Try fishing early or late in the day when the sun is off the water for increased chances of success for springers or summers.

A scattering of summer steelhead are around while anglers are picking up an occasional springer from the lower river on up to Rivermill Dam. If you’re interested in catching steelhead concentrate below Barton Park. Spring Chinook are now spread from Carver on up to the dam. Of note is the hatchery at McIver Park has already seen over 3,500 spring Chinook adults show up in their trap, much earlier than normal for that number of Chinook. Anglers should make note that a fishing deadline is clearly marked up near Rivermill Dam and the fishway; it is illegal to fish or even cast above this deadline.

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 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.

July 21 shows river flows down 85 cfs from a week ago to 737 cfs, a gauge reading of 10.52 feet and the water temperature at 65°.
