Conditions : SANDY RIVER: The Sandy River is a very fishable glacial green. Angler effort has been slow but the few who try will find that there are some coho, summer steelhead Chinook in the river, with an occasional fish being landed.

The overall catch reports have been poor to fair, with morning fishing offering the best opportunity to hook into a fish. The Oxbow to Dabney trip is a good choice by drift boat or pontoon and if you’re bank fishing try Oxbow Park, Dodge Park, the Cedar Creek area at the hatchery, Revenue Bridge, up around the old Marmot dam site, or near the mouth of the Salmon River. Reports of good quality summer steelhead still persist at Cedar Creek. Another quality year of coho returns is expected. . Rumors of coho catch abound with very few confirmed coho landed. This should change in the near future with rain predicted this week. Spring Chinook are still present in the river, but will not make good table fare because they are close to spawning. The large fall Chinook run in the Columbia River is expected to bring good numbers of fish into the lower Sandy, many of which will be unclipped. However, anglers may only retain Chinook with an adipose fin clip. Additionally, angling is closed between markers located in Oxbow Park September 16 – November 15 to protect spawning fall Chinook.

Monday hydrological data shows the river flows below Bull Run at 375cfs, a gauge reading of 7.85 ft.

Please be aware the Lower Sandy River has changed recently with a new channel mouth flowing to the north/northwest about 0.75 miles downstream of I-84. The new channel is shallow and flows are irregular and controlled by the tide along with Columbia and Sandy River flows. Angling is currently allowed in this channel which is also accessible by foot from the Columbia Gorge Scenic Area parking lot on the Sandy Delta (downstream and east side of the I-84 Bridge crossing of the Sandy River).
