Clackamas River Fishing Report 03-10-2021
CLACKAMAS RIVER: steelhead
Fishing has been slow the previous weeks, however, it’s beginning to pick up. Anglers can expect to find new fish throughout the system after this recent rain event.
During the winter months, flow and visibility on the Clackamas will be affected by each passing front and change in snow levels.
Local biologist Ben Walczak offers these video tips for steelhead fishing on the Clackamas River.
