Conditions : SANDY RIVER: The winter steelhead fishery on the Sandy River should be considered over for spring 2016 as virtually no effort can be found up near Cedar Creek and the hatchery. There could be a very small number of fish left to be found but for the most part the excellent winter steelhead run is about done. A few summer steelhead have been landed however, so as the winter steelhead fishery comes to a close anglers now have the opportunity to get in on the start of a summer steelhead run. We’re still early to begin chasing spring Chinook in earnest.

The Sandy Hatchery at Cedar Creek had excellent winter return numbers and began recycling fish back down to the Lewis and Clark boat ramp several weeks ago. They’ve had over 3,800 steelhead return to the hatchery total for the season and earlier had recycled over 2,200 of these winters back downstream to give anglers another shot at hooking them. Interested anglers can identify a recycled steelhead by a simple hole punch found in the right side gill plate cover of the fish.

A typical rule of thumb for the Sandy River is if snow levels are above 4,000 feet it could be a bit off but when below 4,000 feet angling conditions get good. With snow levels moving up some this week we should see conditions looking more typical of springtime runoff.

USGS hydrological data for the Sandy River on May 17 shows flows down at 1,180 cfs, a gauge reading of 8.87 feet, and the water temperature holding at about 50°.
