Sandy River Fish Report for 10-5-2022
Coho fishing has been off to a slow start
Sandy River - Sandy, OR
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Coho fishing has been off to a slow start due to the lack of rain and flow in the river, however that is expected to change drastically with our next weather event.
There are still plenty of Chinook in the system, but anglers should do their best not to harass them as they are likely wild fish on their way to spawning beds. Summer steelhead can still be found throughout the system. Anglers would do best to check river levels before heading to the river.
Be ready when coho arrive. Check out 10 tips for targeting coho.
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.
