Steelhead


Traditional tactics with standard winter steelhead swinging flies are your best choice.

► Winter steelhead should show up in the Sandy in the second half of December, and there should be some summer steelhead still in the system, too.

General


► The Sandy offers good winter fly fishing from Dodge Bridge to Dabney Park. The Oxbow Park to Dabney stretch is an easy drift for boaters. There is also good bank access in the Oxbow Park area, but you'll have to walk a ways. From Dodge to Oxbow, boaters need to have excellent whitewater skills and a large inflatable boat; it's not good water for a McKenzie-style hard boat.
