Fishing has been slow the previous weeks, however, it’s beginning to pick up. Anglers can expect to find new fish throughout the system after this recent rain event.

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 March 24 shows river levels are at a stage height of 13.04 ft, with a flow of 2,380 cfs. Current water temperature is about 42.7F. 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.
