Fishing the Clackamas River we use a swung fly strategy with spey rods. Spey casting is a fun and enjoyable way to cover a lot of water fast. Water temps have been mostly in the 40 degrees range and we typically employ fast sinking tips on the end of Skagit head fly lines.
We use a jet boat on the Clackamas river to cover a range of the best runs quickly. See more about fishing the Clackamas River with www.watertimeoutfitters.com
Here are a few photos of lucky anglers who landed steelhead on the swung fly this April on the Clackamas River.
