The river is higher than I like,but the color is good and you can't argue with success..:D

On the river at noon and off by 5:00 with 2 summers and a native winter that was released.(of course)..

The bigger fish was as hot a fish as I have caught...Made for a good time...For his reward, THE BARBECUE!!:lol::lol::lol:

In the tail out, usually...
I tell you what, i make a motion to impeach the director of the clackamas river hatchery because you folks on the santiams are blessed with a wonderful and beautiful fisherie, while us clackamas river suffer. Sure i catch a couple native fish a month... People bang on the dark fish above rivermill damn but wtf! Where is the chrome keepers! There has to to be like 2 fish per mile run on the clackamas and who knows if they want to bite! O they will be in soon, maybe next week will be better, its called fishing not catching.... I NEED a river like the one you got LOL. Im so jealous! Come teach me how to fish! I am jealous, not pissed just frusterated at ODFW (I wish my river got 10 million summer steelhead to return lol. As many fish are destined for that river system that go over the falls in a single day is what we call our return.). Great job seems like you are putting up a lot of good fish this year. Congrats! And sorry for any potential hijacking.

Clacks a different beast - has its pros as well. Santiams are pretty good, just different timing? Clack has a pretty strong run of winters, while the Santiams get 'em, it's not near as many or as early as the clack system. I thought the clack had some summers showing down lower in the river?

Some of those springers outta the clack are pretty nice fish as well, seen some dandy 20+ pound fish outta there.

They both have their pros n cons really. I need to get up to the clack more...
