Welcome to the website of the Sandy River Chapter of the Association of Northwest Steelheaders.

The Sandy River Chapter was formed in 1964 and is currently located along the shores of the Sandy River in Troutdale, Oregon. Since its inception, this chapter has helped by playing a key role in the development and conservation of sport fishing and is dedicated to improving the freshwater fisheries in the Northwest.

Sandy's members have a wide interest range including but certainly not limited to the following: sponsoring various fishing tournaments and outings, monthly membership meetings, assisting at the Sportsman Show, holding various fund raiser raffles and providing volunteer support for the Hall of Fame dinner and awards banquet in November. There are many other activities that the whole family would enjoy.

We are committed to safeguarding, promoting, and enhancing the social, environmental, and conservational values of sport fishing. Our mission is to take part in "educating the general public on improving, preserving and promoting sport fishing in the Columbia River and their tributary streams and rivers, which include the Sandy."

Be our guest and cruise through our website to learn more about our chapter and how to join this dedicated group. Whether you're a weekend angler, charter captain, or just someone interested in Sandy's scenic views and its fishery, you will find it here.

Time is running out once again. Again we need your help to give credit where credit is deserved.  Your Volunteer time in hours are very important considering they are valued at $21.36 per hour. When collected and submitted to the Association of Northwest Steelheaders, they certify and pass on to the Federal Government to be funded back to the Oregon Dept of Fish & Wildlife. Bottom line…our efforts help support the hatcheries that keep fish in the rivers. Please submit before June 30th your hours spent on any Steelheader projects and mileage where it was an ODFW project. For example ODFW PROJECTS: Carcass Toss, Kid's Fishing Pond, Clinics, Stream projects. Remember time starts when you leave your home until you return. Only if it is ODFW sponsored does mileage become a factor. Again mileage starts from home until your return. Any questions please call me or E-Mail. Robert 503-780-8212 rjwisherstix@gmail.com 

For what it is worth, our fiscal year started 1 July 2015 and ends June 30th 2016. Only activity during this period is accountable. Thank You for your efforts...
