What to Expect in August

How to use this section.


Fresh steelhead should be moving into the lower Clackamas later in the month, and fishing should improve.

Some coho salmon will probably enter the Clackamas in late August. How can you tell the difference between a coho and a steelhead?

  1. Steelhead and coho both have white gums at the base of the teeth on the lower jaw, but steelhead have a white mouth and coho have a black mouth.
  2. Steelhead have black spots in uniform rows on the tailfin. Coho tailfins have black spots only on the top part.
  3. Run your thumbnail along the rays of the tailfin. If it's a steelhead it will feel smooth. If it's a coho it will feel rough.

You might find decent rainbow and cutthroat trout fishing in the upper Clackamas when it's not too hot.
