I made it down to Dodge Park around 11:30 am today and they place was busy. Lots of folks fishing no one catching. I could see folks fishing way up past the bridge and on up to the Garbage hole. There were even folks fishing the Bull Run River. The river is low and off color, but it was still a kick to get out the spey rod and get a few flies stuck in the bottom. Friday it's down to Newport for a weekend of crabbing and trolling in the bay and river for chinook. I hear it's slow for both of them.;)

OK I'm a perfectionist. I like a lighter shade of green with a little more clarity with an arrow pointing to the fish.:lol:

lusted road bridge
That's correct. That is where Lusted Road crosses the Sandy and comes to Dodge Park. If you veer to the right it will take you to Marsh Road and on up to the Garbage Hole. If you veer left you can go by were Rosalyn Lake used to be and end up coming back across the Sandy on Revenue Bridge on Teneyck Rd then past Fish Hatchery Road which will take you to the Cedar Creek Hole.

After you cross the bridge veer left and go up the hill on Lusted, keep going the road curves all over the place, you'll go past a real nice piece of ground on your left that looks like a giant lawn (it's a grass field airport) and has one of those white plastic fences around it. At that point there is a road that veers right and one veers left, go left, the airport should still be on your left. Where Rosalyn Lake was should be on your right. Right after you pass the airport there should be a small Sandy Fire Station on your left. Keep going, just as you pass where the lake used to end is a road to the left..........do.......not......take it, it will take you down to the Bull Run River and the old power house. Keep going it's at that point the roads name changes to Teneyck a few more curves and the road will go past a grave yard on your right the two 90 degree turns and you will cross the Sandy again at Revenue Bridge (Part of the Barlow Trail). Stay on Teneyck and it will go up the hill to Fish Hatchery Rd. Coming the other way through Sandy is a lot easier for most folks. But yes you can get there going the back way.

Irishrover Im pretty sure I saw you taking those pics. Pretty slow down there for sure. There is a surprising amount of people out fishing for little catches. I did manage to pick up a nice big native buck and lost another farther upriver. I am afraid with the low low columbia and lack of rains our sandy river run is going to be a bust. Either that or a late run. Lets hope they start dumping some water at the john day and Bonneville dams.:pray: Oh yeah and get your rain on!:dance::dance:
