Conditions : SANDY RIVER: There’s nothing new to report for the Sandy River with water levels extremely low, as it’s been the entire summer. Angler effort has been very light due to the poor fishing conditions, with only a scattering of folks out in the early morning hours. The mouth of the Salmon River is seeing a bit of activity with rumors of an occasional fish being hooked. The warm weather is aiding in the milky glacier-melt color which will likely persist until the weather cools and even the Zig Zag River is showing signs of glacial melt and silt.

Steelhead returns are below average this summer, although a few are still being hooked, mainly above Dabney Park. A few late summers should be in the river from Cedar Creek downstream, with the best areas for hooking steelhead being near Cedar Creek, Dodge Park, and Revenue. Spring Chinook are also available but the challenging water conditions will test even the most skilled angler.

If you’re targeting spring Chinook, get going early in the morning and concentrate your efforts in the lower river below Dodge Park. Springers are acclimated near the mouth of the Bull Run River and lower flows should cause fish to hold below Dodge Park. Several dozen of these fish have shown up in the ODFW trap on the Bull Run River so there are Chinook around.

Sandy River on Aug. 24 shows flows at 304 cfs with a gauge reading of 7.62 feet. The water temperature, which has fallen some as the nights are cooler and longer, is holding near 58° in the morning hours.
