Clackamas River Report

Clackamas River - Estacada, OR (Clackamas County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Steelhead fishing has been pretty slow as the winter steelhead season winds down. That said, there are still some brighter wild winters being caught on the Clackamas. And a few summer fish also have been caught.

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 31 shows river levels stable at a stage height of 13.04 ft, with a flow of 2,380 cfs. Current water temperature is about 43.2F. 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.
