Conditions : SANDY RIVER: Sandy River fishing conditions managed to hold steady with low snow levels helping to keep the river in decent fishing shape, although the water is a bit too cold. Frigid east winds, snow, and ice kept most anglers off the river, however a few hardy souls have been out trying for early winter steelhead. Observed effort at the hatchery was also down due to the extreme cold and wind, although the word is that a few fish have been landed. The rising snow levels and heavy rainfall this week will surely leave the Sandy unfishable for several days, although there could be signs of improvement by the weekend.

The Sandy River winter steelhead are a later returning stock so it will be later into January before we see good numbers of winter fish in the river. The hatchery has its trap open and several winters have come in so far, both hatchery and wild.

USGS hydrological data for Jan. 16 shows the Sandy flows at 1,140 cfs, with a gauge reading of 8.84 feet and the water temperature down near 35° F. The wet weather this week will definitely bring an increase in flows, turbidity, and water temperature.
