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.

Dec. 6th fish along

The Sandy River Chapter invites all of it’s members and recent students of our ODFW Steelhead Workshop to come on out for some simple hands-on-how-to fishing practice on Saturday Dec. 6th.  Just bring your rod and gear and meet at Glenn Otto Park in Troutdale        ( the same place that the Steelhead Workshop was held ) at 8AM. This simple ½ day shore fishing trip , led by experienced members of the Sandy River Chapter, will help you learn about how to “read “ water, fine tune rigging and a host of other skills. It’s a great place to try out all that new gear you bought at those “Black Friday“ sales!

There is no charge, but we would appreciate a RSVP by e-mail or phone for planning purposes. 

Contact Larry Palmer at   503-286-2093  or  palmerlarryd@yahoo.com

Thanks and I’ll see you there!
