Fisher’s Bend is a site along the lower Clackamas River at river mile 11.1 – 11.8. The lower Clackamas River is used as a migration corridor and rearing habitat by salmon and steelhead, but because of extensive loss of historic habitat, the river is a high priority target for restoration. The Fisher’s Bend riparian habitat had been isolated from the main stem of the river, except in very high flows. Project partners identified this bend in the river as a potential site for habitat restoration because its ecological value and the willingness of local landowners. Over 5 years of planning and restoration have gone into this restoration project – a commitment we are proud to have made to the fish and wildlife we serve!
