Conditions : SANDY RIVER: The Sandy River has cleared up somewhat after cooler weather in the past few days but there’s still some residual glacial-melt effects as the milky, silty conditions continue, while the low summertime flows have held on. Sandy Hatchery personnel report that fishing effort has fallen off considerably at Cedar Creek as evidenced by the decreased volume of cars in the hatchery parking lot, likely due to the warm water and glacier conditions. A handful of summer steelhead are still being hooked while a few more late running spring Chinook have been landed down in the lower river, along with reports of fish being caught further up in the system. Coho returns to the Sandy remain on the backburner, but it’s early.

Of note, ODFW fish sorting traps are now in place on the Bull Run River, Zig Zag River, and Salmon River as a means of collecting broodstock hatchery fish while passing wild fish upstream. These traps get worked 7 days a week by ODFW personnel and there have been hatchery and wild Chinook moving into the traps so the springers are working their way up into the system.

USGS hydrological data for the Sandy River on September 6 shows flows reading higher than last week at 461 cfs, a gauge reading of 7.95 feet, and the water temperature down near 56°F.
