With the Willamette out of shape, metro anglers are looking to the Sandy and Clackamas to cure their cabin fever. There are some sturgeon available, but with the flows high and the water colored, it’ll be a while before any desirable fishing takes place here. Meldrum Bar may boot out an early Clackamas bound steelhead when the river clears, that but looks like it’ll be a while from now.

On the Clackamas, the coho run is largely over and with the current high water event, even passage has slowed for the late-run coho. Steelhead is on the minds of many Clackamas River anglers, but it’ll be another month before fishable numbers show.

Pro guide Jeff Stoeger (503-704-7920) of O2BFISHN reports from the Sandy River, “Hello All. I want to wish you and your families a very merry Christmas and please be safe. The fishing report for this week was that there was some fish caught early last week with a mix of hatchery and natives. The river started to rise last Friday and then it blew up to over 18ft on Sunday and has started to slowly drop into shape. The current level will be around 11.5 ft. on Thursday and could be fishable and by the weekend, the river should drop into the upper 10’s and then jump back up over a 11ft. The temp is going to drop with the freezing level also dropping but you will have to deal with the wind.
