Sandy River??

Has anyone been fishing the Sandy in the past week? If so how is the fishing?

I fished it Sunday... pretty poor fishing. River seemed pretty low. A few fish around but wasn't worth the drive up there for me. We hit every hole I could think of and only witnessed one fish caught. Heard of a few more. Only fish I seen roll were two really colored up natives. If I lived closer though I'd fish it more.

My question is why has no one talked about the Clack this year!? I've seen I think zero reports on the coho fishing there. I'm scratchin my head here...

It's been pretty slow down at cedar creek and below. Hopefully we get a good shot of rain this weekend and It'll be pumpin out limits again by mon or tue. I just dont know what to say about the clack. I still see people fishin the the big river (the old bowling alley hole, carver, barton) and heard of dismal reports outta eagle creek. Only 500 fish have made it back to the hatchery pen so far. Thats pretty sad!

Sandy is at a slow craw right now and not to sure it is going to pick back up. This years run seems to be pretty small compaired to last years for sure.
The Clack didn't seem to good this year. What fish I did see on the Clack/Eagle were colored up at the start of the run. I'm talking like a month and a half ago.
Don't seem like either river got as good of a run as we all would and were hoping for. Maybe luck will come through after this weeks rain and bring in a mess load of fish but I wouldn't hold my breath on that one though. I'm heading for the coast in hopes of getting in to some fallies.

Did a drive by on the Sandy today on my way to an estimate on Marsh Rd. Saw a few people fishing garbage hole and a bunch of people fishing Dodge. Water was clear and low. Still looked fishy to me. I agree with everyone about the rain effect we'll have over the weekend. I'll bet it will greatly improve the success rate.

Your best bet is to head out there after the rain stops. At least thats what I would do.

Just wondering if it's blown out. It should be good while it rains, no? :)

I haven't been out there sense the rain started but knowing the sandy I would say it is blown out by now or at least chocolate brown by now.

It's about doubled it's CFS from roughly 400 CFS from before the rain to 800 CFS now. So I'd say it's fairly blow out.

I won't do it above 9ft, I've crossed at 9.2-9.3 and almost died!

Agreed nothing above 9 to be safe last year a father and son were crossing at 9.5 and the father got swept away and wasn't found for months. Granted they fell while trying to cross on the tree but still the same, at that level it is strong and can take you OFF your feet. No fish is worth that risk.

10/27..water color is still murkey, about 6-12 inches of visibility. Lots O fish right at the mouth of CC waiting to get by the gauntlet of people standing in cedar creek itself. Managed to cross and go downriver to fish with 2 guys at the slaughter hole. depending on how much it rains tonight, it should be crossable by tommorow morning for the smaller cats.
