Sandy

Rating - Excellent   

Friday, Jan 31 2020
SANDY RIVER: steelhead The Sandy is running high, like most of the rivers in the metro area, following a solid week of precipitation. Its getting to be prime time for winter steelhead fishing on the Sandy, although conditions should continue to improve on into March/April, which is usually the peak of the winter run. Its not inconceivable that a spring Chinook could show up, as they have been known to move in as early as February, albeit in small numbers.River flows are too high to be considered fishable at the present time, but could provide the catalyst winter steelhead are looking for to move upstream. In addition, temperatures have improved, making fishing prospects inviting in the near future.USGS hydrological data for Jan. 15 shows Sandy flows at 2,770 cfs, a gauge reading of 10.62 feet and the water temperature on the Little Sandy at Bull Run still warming slightly to 48 F.
