Conditions : CLACKAMAS RIVER: Clackamas River water conditions have changed some in the past few days after a weekend of heavy showers and cool temperatures, with increased flows and colder water temperatures. Winter steelhead catches have slowed down considerably as the run seems to be coming to an end, although a few fish have been landed around Dog Creek near the hatchery at McIver Park. Summer steelhead are appearing more regularly in the catch but this fishery will only improve as we head further into May. It’s still early to expect any springers to show up in the catch.

It’s been an exceptional season for winter steelhead on most local streams and Clackamas Hatchery at McIver Park has had nearly 4,000 winters swim in, a return that obliterates the previous season record 1,947 set in 2013. The sensational return allowed the hatchery to complete their spawning of winter steelhead earlier than normal, with all of the excess fish now going to community food banks or stream nutrient enrichment.

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.

USGS hydrological data for April 25 shows river flows up at 3,450 cfs, with a gauge reading of 13.05 feet and the water temperature steady near 48° F. All of the readings come from the Estacada gauge near Milo McIver State Park.
