Water Condition

Conditions : CLACKAMAS RIVER: The river is falling into shape and winter steelhead are distributed throughout the system, as evidenced by the first arrivals at Clackamas hatchery last week. Returns are still small, however, although numbers should increase into March. More anglers are starting to venture out, both by boat and on the bank. Accounts of winter fish still are not exceptional but anglers have reported landing fish between Feldheimer’s above Barton and Cross Park in Gladstone. Fishing conditions should continue to improve into the weekend when flows are more favorable.

Early in the winter steelhead run fish tend to stay low in the system, downstream of Barton. When the water drops and clears, try switching to smaller gear such as jigs and beads/single eggs drifted under a bobber.

Be willing to move around on your day of fishing as staying in one spot may lead you to miss fish all together. Barton Park provides access to substantial bank fishing throughout winter. There is also access to the river upstream of Barton Park from Eaden Road.

Boat anglers also should concentrate on the lower river from Barton to Carver and Carver to Clackamette as large groups of fish are known to hold in deeper pools. As winter progresses through February begin to move upstream to the Feldheimer to Barton and Barton to Carver section. March is typically the best month for fishing in the upper section of the lower river from McIver Park to Feldheimer.

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 Feb. 21 shows river flows high at 7,030 cfs, with a gauge reading of 14.77 feet and the water temperature holding around 39°. All of the readings come from the Estacada gauge near Milo McIver State Park.
