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.

Public Meetings Give Anglers an Opportunity to Demonstrate How Important This is to Out-Migrating Juvenile Salmon and Steelhead
After countless meetings and years of collaboration, the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) plans to take action against the growing population of double-crested cormorants that call East Sand Island on the lower Columbia River their home. Known as the largest nesting colony of double-crested cormorants and Caspian terns in the world, the estimated population of cormorants was 13,600 breeding pairs in 2010.
