Clackamas River Report

Clackamas River - Estacada, OR (Clackamas County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

It’s still early for the best of the winter steelhead run, and high water may keep anglers off the river this week. But there are some winter steelhead around, so be ready to hit the river once water levels begin to drop.

During the winter months, flow and visibility on the Clackamas will be affected by each passing front and change in snow levels.

USGS hydrological data for Jan. 6 shows river flows have increased to 5,930 cfs, water temperature is 42.8F, and the gage height at 14.56 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.
