has any one fished steelhead below faraday dam or heard about it?
you guys do realise that the clackamas does not have a great summer run in comparison to previous years, right?
Also if you guys knew Bigdog you would know he said that as a joke with a smile, no need to freak out.
There are probably some fish up there, however there are most likely a whole bunch more down at mciver by dog creek.
There are still fish throughout the entire lower river too, and coho at the mouth waiting for rain. there are just so f'in many rafters that you only get the first couple hours of daylight to hit it.
There is plenty of clipped fish up high. I have only hooked one nat ever bellow farraday. In fact got another cliped one to day, lost two kept one. Just have to know where to look and put the time in on the watter. I know I know how much time do I need to put in, well a lot or could be a little. I know that don't help to much but there is no way of telling how much time it is going to take. Just don't give up and learn the waters you are fishing.
