Fish Creek


Fish Creek is located on the western slope of the Cascade Range in northwest Oregon. It flows through a narrow canyon near the headwaters and into a broader canyon as it nears the confluence with the Clackamas River. The four-mile section ending at the Clackamas is suited for whitewater paddling by experienced boaters.

Outstandingly Remarkable Values


Fish Creek is very important as potential anadromous fish habitat for spring Chinook, winter and summer steelhead, and winter run coho salmon. The creek once provided excellent habitat, and while past management practices and flooding have eroded its quality, an ambitious restoration effort is taking place.
