Conditions : SANDY RIVER: The Sandy is in great fishing condition and should remain that way after a slight bump in flows around mid-week. The forecast shows some decent rainfall Tuesday and Wednesday but the river should be looking good later into the week and weekend. This time of year the Sandy starts to see a lull in fishing opportunity as the coho and summer steelhead fisheries come to a close. There’s maybe a few coho lingering around but these fish are likely to be dark and suspect as far as food quality is concerned. It’s still possible to hook into a summer steelhead but it’s getting late for them also and quantity and quality again come into play.

Although it’s probably happened, there haven’t been any confirmed reports of winter steelhead landed on the Sandy yet. The Sandy River winter steelhead are a later returning fish in recent years due to the broodstock fishery management program. This fishery doesn’t usually get cranked up until after the first of the year, but there could be a few early returners looking to get hooked.

The Oxbow to Dabney drift remains a good bet by drift boat. If you’re bank fishing, try Oxbow Park, Dodge Park, and the confluence of the Sandy and Cedar Creek below the Sandy hatchery. Be very cautious if you decide to ford the river – PFDs, good footwear, and walking sticks are always a good idea, especially during periods of higher flows we can expect over the next several months.

Hydrological data for the Sandy River on Dec. 16 shows flows down from last week at 2,020 cfs, a gauge reading of 9.59 ft. and the water temperature holding at 44°.
