Conditions : CLACKAMAS RIVER: Summer river conditions have a firm hold on the Clackamas as the flows dropped a bit more this past week while water temperatures rose. The river is mainly a drift boat fishery with very limited options for experienced sled owners to move up and down within close proximity to boat ramps. With summer in full swing the recreational rafters have been out in big numbers so fishing should be done early morning or late evening.

Summer steelhead and spring Chinook are the main target in July; summers can be found throughout the river, particularly in the reach from Carver up to McIver Park where acclimation ponds are found and recycled fish are available. Folks fishing up around McIver Park have been hooking both summers and springers, and the small number of boat anglers out have had some success drifting from McIver to Barton. It’s become a hardware fishery of late with spoons or spinners producing results. Bank anglers working above Faraday are also landing a few fish. Anglers should make note that an angling deadline is clearly marked up near Rivermill Dam and the fishway; it is illegal to fish or even cast above this deadline.

The spring Chinook fishery will continue to be the main focus of most anglers’ attention with summer steelhead also attracting effort. Of particular note, recycled fish are captured at the Norh Fork fish trap or Clackamas Hatchery and taken downstream and released at Riverside and Carver parks, typically, every week through roughly mid-July. There have been several reports come in of these recycled summers being caught since these fish are typically marked with “floy” tags near their dorsal fin and have an ODFW phone number and the point of origin of the fish. Anglers who catch these fish are asked to call the information in; though it is not required, it is appreciated.

Monday hydrological data shows flows down a bit at 1,130 cfs, a gauge reading in Estacada of 11.18 ft., and the water temperature now around 63°.
