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.
Sandy River Spring Chinook Classic Supports ANWS Legal Costsby Doug Briggs
Fellow Sandy River Chapter Members,
Joe Domenico, President of the ANWS, sent the attached very enlightening letter about the role the ANWS played in the recent court Opinion & Order. The Amicus Curiea brief submitted by ANWS and our allies, NMFS & ODFW may have tipped the scales in our favor.
Keep in mind the Sandy River Chapter made a significant pledge to support the Amicus financially and help the ANWS produce the 20 page document in less than a week. Without our support the ANWS may have hesitated or not moved forward with it, missing a small window of opportunity.
Dan Drazan, Sandy River Chapter Member and his legal firm did an outstanding job in a very short timeframe.
The Sandy Chapter should be proud, as well.
We can take it one step further by signing up for the Sandy River Chinook Classic to be held on June 1. Become a part of History in the making.
