CLACKAMAS RIVER: winter steelheadAnglers are starting to catch winter steelhead on the Clackamas, and effort is increasing as anglers take advantage of improved flows and early returns. So far, mostly wild steelhead are showing up in the bag, and these fish must be released unharmed.The river is currently running high following the past weeks big rain event, which could trigger fish movement and better winter steelhead prospects when water levels recede to normal flows.USGS hydrological data for Jan. 15 shows river flows receding to 2,280 cfs, water temperature holding around 41 F, and the gauge height dropping slightly to 12.56 ft. All of the readings come from the Estacada gauge near Milo McIver State Park.
