Big and littlefishing lakes

Follow the Clackamas River from Oregon City all the way past Estacada to find several small lakes usually stocked with fish. Several have camping available. Super quiet up there.

This river is an excellent flow to a mild whitewater rafting...About an 8-hour current speed sailing from McIver Park to Barton Park and another 3-4 hours if you want to continue downstream to the Carver Park...Probably most of the riverside landscapes along the way are untouched or still in its original form from long time ago since the Lewis &...
