Angler pressure has been high and fishing has been relatively slow the previous weeks, however it’s beginning to pick up. Anglers can expect to find new fish throughout the system after this recent rain event.

During the winter months, flow and visibility on the Sandy are greatly influenced by each passing front and change in snow levels. Colder temperatures, as well as less precipitation means this glacially fed system will not only be on the drop, but will also clear up much more quickly.

Anglers should confirm access before they go. All Metro Parks and boat ramps (including Dabney and Lewis and Clark) are now open, but may have modified operations. Check conditions at individual parks on Metro’s website. State parks and recreation areas appear open.

USGS hydrological data for Feb. 17, shows Sandy flows near Bull Run were at 6,300 cfs with a gage height of 11.79.
