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.

Board Meeting Times Changed

by Greg Reed
on 1/28/2018

Late last year we changed our long standing Board meeting date (2nd Wednesday of the month) in an attempt to get some other Board members in attendance. Attendance since has not reflected this. Therefore, we are returning to a meeting date of the 2nd Wednesday of the month. Therefore, date for our next meeting will be Wednesday February 14th, 2018. Same time, same place.


Note:  Our events tab/calendar has been updated through June.
