Fishing and Species
Fishing the lower Clack, you will wade in the green water and swing flies through the river’s countless ledgy slots, boulder strewn runs and broad tailouts. They use 20ft jet boats to get from spot to spot, giving maximum flexibility to adjust and adapt to the changing conditions and the ability to stay in the fish and not waste time floating between spots. The Clack’s bounty is no secret. Don’t expect to be the only angler on the water. With the flexibility of the jet boat you can usually find plenty of solitude and be at the right spot at the right time to connect with steelhead. The guides are seasoned and very knowledgeable. Whether you are a seasoned spey angler or newer to swinging flies with a 2 handed rod, you will be in fishy water and add a little to your game.
Fish The Swing

Fishing classic and seductive water with chrome bright steelhead are what we all dream about. The Clackamas River begins as a high alpine stream in the Northern Oregon Cascade Mountains before it descends over eighty miles to the west where it eventually meets the tidally influenced Willamette River in Oregon City . Known locally as the Clack, it drains the forests, springs and snowmelt of the western Cascadian ridgeline between Mt Hood and Mt Jefferson. This cold, clear, nutrient-rich water is perfect habitat for many fish species, both resident and anadromous.

The the lodge and the fishing are located on the section from River Mill Dam near Estacada to the mouth. This section of river provides an abundance of awesome year-round opportunity for a steelheader. Its waters beg for flies swung on two-handed rods and chrome fish are there twelve months out of the year to intercept those flies and stretch your backing. The jet boats are out the back door, so fishing is only minutes away.
