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.

Our Next Clinic

by Larry Palmer
on 4/2/2015

Our next clinic in conjunction with ODFW will occur in our regular meeting place, in the Sam Cox Building at Glenn Otto Park on Saturday, May 9th. The clinic setup begins at 8 AM. The clinic begins at 9 AM, and lasts until 4:30. Subject of this clinic will be shore fishing for Summer Steelhead.

I need chapter members to assist with room setup and take down, assisting students with knot tying, and actually fishing at the end of the day. ODFW will be handling the registration for the class on the ODFW website. Cost will be $52 per student.

If you’d like to attend this class for free in exchange for your volunteer efforts during the class, you may sign up with me tonight, or by email at palmerlarryd@yahoo.com. Space is limited, so don’t delay.

Our members have enjoyed the class, learned some things themselves, and been able to extend a welcoming hand to our newest chapter members, the students in the class.

I must say that the free lunch and fancy baked snacks are also quite popular!

Please sign up as a volunteer and I’ll see you there!
