Conditions : SANDY RIVER: The Sandy River winter steelhead fishery has been consistently producing fish for several days with anglers finding good success from Oxbow Park on through Dabney Park and down to Lewis and Clark Park. The crew at Sandy Hatchery reports seeing several fish come out of the Cedar Creek area every day but this has always been a popular spot so expect to be fishing with other anglers. There are confirmed sightings of a sea lion or two working the lower river and having a negative impact on the catch rates but there’s still plenty of water to fish successfully. The peak of the season on the river is during the months of February and early March as hatchery winter steelhead are integrated with wild winter steelhead in the Sandy so they have similar run timing as wild fish (same on the Clackamas).

The hatchery has seen over 1,000 fish return so far and over 900 of them have been recycled back downstream to Lewis and Clark boat ramp and Dabney boat ramp. These fish can be identified by a “hole punch” in the gill plate should you happen to catch one, and are recycled to give anglers another shot at hooking them.

USGS hydrological data for February 12 shows Sandy flows at 2,150 cfs, with a gauge reading of 9.68 feet and the water temperature down near 40°F.
