________________________________________

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 ridge line between Mt. Hood and Mt. Jefferson. This cold, clear, nutrient-rich water is perfect habitat for many fish species, both resident and anadromous. The river’s classic and seductive water along with its chrome bright steelhead are all conveniently close to the Portland Airport. 
 
Guests fish two anglers per guide and depart the lodge each morning via jet boat. The boat is only used for transportation between spots; guests will get out of the boat and wade through the rivers countless ledgy slots, boulder strewn runs and broad tailouts. The Clackamas' waters beg for flies swung on two-handed rods and chrome fish are present twelve months out of the year to intercept your flies and stretch your backing. The professional guides here will give you the best odds of success while improving your spey casting and fishing skills-- they love teaching technique and enjoy the time on the water. Overnight, the jet boats stay in the water right in front of the lodge which also happens to be a great steelhead run...it doesn't get any more convenient than this!
 
With a maximum capacity of 4 anglers, Clackamas River Lodge provides an intimate experience and the staff is on hand to take care of every detail. Each guest will sleep in a private bedroom with a queen bed, while bathrooms are shared with the group. All meals are prepared by a professional chef and a comfortable lounge area is the perfect setting for cocktails and fish stories by the fire each evening.

From Marcus:

I've been spey fishing for years, and I'm happy to help you progress as a caster and an angler throughout the trip. With all the fishing I've done in my life, I still consider landing a steelhead on the swung fly to be the pinnacle of what fly fishing has to offer. And I love spending time on the water with people who enjoy the process of swinging flies and searching for wild steelhead.

I consider the Clackamas a great venue for swinging flies, whether you're a beginner or experience spey caster. And Mid-March is a prime time for searching for these special fish There are only four spots available for this trip, so I encourage you to reach out as soon as possible if it interests you.

Please reach out to me directly at marcus.flyshop@gmail.com if you're interested in fishing with me on the Clackamas!
