Idaho Fish Report
Summer steelhead and spring Chinook fishing has been good on the Sandy
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Summer steelhead and spring Chinook fishing has been good on the Sandy. Anglers can expect to find both summer steelhead and spring chinook throughout the river, with most of the springers below Dodge Park. Anglers would do best to check river levels before heading to the river. The first of the season’s coho should be expected in the system any day now.
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.
