Sandy River Fish Report for 1-10-2024
Winter steelhead can currently be found throughout the system
Sandy River - Sandy, OR
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Winter steelhead can currently be found throughout the system, with numbers expected to increase in the weeks to come. With colder weather and water temps, often fishing is more productive in the lower river, as fresh fish entering the system seem to make their way upstream more slowly.
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.
