Coho Throughout The Clackamas

Clackamas River - Estacada, OR (Clackamas County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Access to popular fishing areas is still changing quickly. Anglers should confirm access before they go. 

There are coho throughout the Clackamas. If you want to catch hatchery fish concentrate on areas downstream of the hatchery influence. but not necessarily at the hatchery. Recent rains have decreased visibility as it clears fishing will pick up. 

We’re at or near the peak of the coho run, and early returns of both wild and hatchery coho suggest there will be a strong coho return this year.
