Conditions : SANDY RIVER: River conditions are holding up well on the Sandy for anglers in pursuit of summer steelhead or spring Chinook, and reports from the hatchery say that steady numbers of both summers and springers are coming out daily in the Cedar Creek area fishery. There are reportedly fish in the Sandy River system above the hatchery as well now that it’s mid-July, perhaps as far up as the mouth of the Salmon River. There had been a small number of summer steelhead swim into the hatchery this spring but that number remains fairly low. Keep in mind moving further into July that the glacial melt will begin affecting Sandy River leaving the river silted up and a chalky gray/white color. Many experienced Sandy River anglers say that the fish actually seem to bite better when these off-color conditions show up since it provides a bit more “cover”.

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 July 11 shows the Sandy flows falling a bit more at 692 cfs, with a gauge reading of 8.30 feet and the water temperature dropping back down to about 56°F.
