Sandy

Was out on the Sandy this morning. Lots of anglers, no action from anyone. Saw people drifting & spinning. There was about 1 ft of viz & water levels were up about 1-2 feet overall. B10 is doing well, when can we expect those fatties up here?

Not sure what you are asking. Springers are over , the only fall nooks the Sandy gets are big nasty ones that cut like a Tule. Coho will arrive soon.

Should start picking up over the next 1-2 weeks. As cchinook mentioned, no hatchery nook run on the Sandy but there is a solid run of wild

Probably 15 people out there fishing though - lots of pressure for it being so early. Everyone must have seen the dam counts

There is for coho , springers , and summer and winter steel. The fall nooks are nasty , dark and unclipped. It is rare to get a clipped one that is still bright.

Dabney was dead tonight; fished from 4-7 and saw maybe 3 fish roll over the 3 hours. Worked all the way from the big pool above the boat ramp down to the bridge with twitching jigs and spinners

I actually got on the board yesterday on the Sandy, small wild coho. Couldn’t have been more than 2 pounds

It was deadddd other than that though. No rollers or anything. Did see maybe 5 chinook go through the small rapids above the boat ramp tho

Now that I’m looking back at the picture, I’m pretty sure it was a summer steelhead. In the moment I was just worried about getting it released alive. Full white mouth and tongue with small teeth, spots all over tail, I believe tail was flat even though it looks forked in the photo
