Conditions : SANDY RIVER: After a summer of extremely low water the Sandy River saw a good jump up in flows thanks to this rainy week, offering much better opportunity for salmon and steelhead anglers who’ve been dealing with the very low water. Unfortunately the river is a bit muddy but conditions should improve once the heavy rains subside later this week. It’s getting late into the season for those in pursuit of summer steelhead or spring Chinook, but there should be a few decent fish still to be found. Meanwhile once the water settles down the lower Sandy will certainly be putting out some fresh coho as the run just gets going in early fall and these salmon make the right turn from the Columbia on their way up to Sandy Hatchery.

The ODFW broodstock collection trap on the Bull Run River has continued to catch fair numbers of springers on a daily basis, going back to July, as these fish return from acclimation releases done two or three years ago. As a result the Sandy River around Dodge Park has been putting out a few late Chinook, and anglers fishing the Garbage Hole and the Pipeline have been finding some success as well. This late into the season expect to find that these fish will be turning dark and their quality deteriorating, but there’s still the chance for few nice springers to be landed.

Anglers can find bank access to the Sandy River in several areas from Troutdale up to Brightwood. Lewis and Clark Park, Dabney Park, Oxbow Park, and Dodge Park all offer good spots for bank fishing as well as having boat ramps if you have a driftboat or sled.

USGS hydrological data for Sept. 18 shows the Sandy flows up nicely at 775 cfs, with a gauge reading of 8.41 feet and the water temperature down considerably at 52°F.
