The river is now at summer levels. Some steelhead are available high in the system.

Steelhead


► Your best bet for traditional tactics is when the light is low--right at dawn or dusk. You can also attach your fly with a riffle hitch and skate it across the surface.

► As the river becomes low and clear, smaller flies should work best. Purple and blue flies are good choices, such as the Purple Green Butt and Streetwalker.

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