Conditions : SANDY RIVER: The Sandy River is very susceptible to freezing levels and run-off due to its headwaters coming off the slopes of Mt. Hood. Anglers can typically expect that when the snow level is over 4,000 ft. the river could be off-color, while if under 4,000 ft. conditions should be good. The lack of any significant rain or snow has led to the river getting low and clear with no change in sight.

The catch for winter steelhead on the Sandy has improved in recent days, with some good catch seen at Cedar Creek and it should get better as the weeks go by, but the overall numbers of fish have yet to arrive. The Sandy River winter steelhead are a later returning fish in recent years due to the broodstock fishery management program. This fishery doesn’t usually get cranked up until late January or February, but the hatchery has had a decent number of fish already swim into the holding ponds.

The Oxbow to Dabney drift remains a good bet by drift boat. If you’re bank fishing, try along the Old Columbia River Hwy between Lewis and Clark Park and Dabney Park, Oxbow Park, Dodge Park, and the confluence of the Sandy and Cedar Creek below the Sandy hatchery. Be very cautious if you decide to ford the river – PFDs, good footwear, and walking sticks are always a good idea, especially during periods of higher flows we can expect over the next several months.

Hydrological data for the Sandy River on Jan. 20 shows flows up considerably at 5,860 cfs, a gauge reading of 11.64 ft. and the water temperature steady near 41°.
