What to Expect in June

Summer steelhead can be found in the Clackamas this month. Depending on the weather pattern, the river can be in and out of shape in June, so watch the river levels. Look for 12.0-13.5 feet on the Estacada gage. Sometimes the water can be surprisingly high in early June, then drop quickly to low levels when the runoff season has ended. Thus you might start the month with a sink-tip line and end it with a floater as the level drops and the temperature rises.

Steelhead can be found throughout the river, but eventually they all stack-up below the fish hatchery at McIver Park. It can be a crowded and sometimes unpleasant fishery, but if you get there early in the morning you'll have a good shot at some hatchery steelhead.
