The Clackamas River in Spring
Fish run timing on the Clackamas provides opportunities year round. Winter run steelhead start showing in December and run all the way through May. Summer steelhead, a incredible tough fighter, come into the river as early as March and arrive through July; staying in the river through the winter of the following year. Spring Chinook salmon show in the Clackamas in April and are found through June. Fall salmon make their way into the Clackamas in September and October. These are mainly coho headed to the Eagle Creek hatchery a tributary of the Clackamas.
Summer Run Steelhead like this one provide great fishing opportunities.
Wild steelhead from the Clackamas are tough fish!
When a fish does take the fly with the swung fly strategy the take is unmistakable! The solid grab on the end of the line is an electrifying and addicting way to catch fish.
