Hello fishing peeps I got a few questions for ya.

1)Ive never fished the Clackamas river before and was wondering if people fish below the north fork reservoir Or is it mainly above that river mill dam?

2)Also being new to salmon / steelhead fishing, would it be better to fish at the clackamette park (more down river) during this time or should I go more upriver towards mciver park area?

3) anyone have a guideline of how to know which part is good or how to follow fish by reading the counts? I have no idea what im doing šŸ˜‚

The Clackamas River was once a great salmon river , no more . Go to the Sandy , Oxbow Park , #4 spinners . Now would be good .

I have 40 yrs. of experience playing with salmon.

I went to the sandy at oxbow last weekend and saw a giant chrome spring chinook jump clear out of the water right in front of me.

Both rivers have chinook in them. Neither support amazing runs.

Many of them are not clipped , that does not mean they are wild . Thanks O.D.F.W. !
