Clackamas River Steelhead Fly Fishing

Clackamas River Steelhead

Larimer Outfitters is the most experienced fly fishing guide service on the Clackamas River. The "Clack" is one of the premier winter and spring steelhead rivers in Oregon. Its long, graceful runs are perfect for Spey casting and traditional steelhead presentations.

Originating in the Cascade Mountains, high in the Mount Hood National Forest, the Clack runs northwest until emptying into the Willamette River outside of Portland, Oregon.

Winter steelhead start ascending the Clackamas River in early December, at first in small pods. By Christmas, the pods can become waves. As winter presses on, more natives will begin their journey home. The run of Clackamas River winter steelhead peaks in February and March.

We'll be utilizing my jet boat to access the endless miles of incredible fly water on the Clackamas. Consequently, we can fish almost twice the water as we could floating the river. Winter steelheading is about two things; being at the right place at the right time, and covering the water. The jet boat allows us to do both.

With its seductive water and amazing fish the Clackamas River is a "must fish" for any serious steelhead angler.
