CLACKAMAS RIVER: spring Chinook, summer steelheadFishing remains very slow on the Clackamas River due to a combination of poor returns, low flows and high water temperatures. Seasons are open for hatchery steelhead and spring Chinook but fish are few and far between. Soon it will be time to start thinking about targeting coho, which are just beginning to enter the mouth of the Columbia on the heels of a successful ocean coho season, which is currently underway.The first coho in the Clackamas are usually found in the lower river, between Riverside Park and the mouth, or at the mouth of Eagle Creek as the fish make their way toward Eagle Creek National Fish Hatchery. The reality is those fish are probably still at least month away so plan any fishing expeditions in this area accordingly.USGS hydrological data for Aug. 21 shows river flows at757 cfs water temperature declining slightly at 64 F, and the gauge height once again virtually unchanged from a week ago at 10.60 ft. All of the readings come from the Estacada gauge near Milo McIver State Park. Hydrologic data and river forecasts can also be accessed on the NOAA/National Weather Service NW River Forecast Center -- NW River Forecast Center
