Winter steelhead can now be found throughout the Clackamas River. Current high water and poor visibility may limit opportunities, especially in the lower river. Anglers would do best to check river levels before heading to the river. Fresh fish should be entering the system with each passing rain event for the next several months.
Flow and visibility on the Clackamas will be affected by each passing front and change in snow levels.
