Fishing and Species
The Sandy River is in close proximity to Portland. Trips are day floats in a raft or drift boat.
Sandy River, Oregon

Marty and Mia Sheppard are experienced steelhead anglers, who know the techniques of how to cast and fish spey rods, which lines and tips to use, and fly selection including their own patterns. Every day on the water they share their experience, making you a better, more knowledgeable angler.

The Sheppards guide on the Sandy from December to April. Spey rods are effective due to the size of these rivers, their changing levels and varied runs. They are perfectly suited to fishing the classic wet fly swing, using sink-tips.

The Sandy River, a tributary of the Columbia River, is a beautiful, intimate river, originating on the slopes of Mt. Hood, running 56 miles long. Located east of Portland, the Sandy produces good numbers of winter Steelhead. The largest run of wild Steelhead enters the river in January and continues through May. In April, summer Steelhead start to enter the system, giving you a chance at hooking either a winter or summer fish during that time. Marty and Mia offer day floats on the wild and scenic stretch of the Sandy.

Your guide will have lunch, flies, and few rods to demo for you at no extra fee. All of the knowledge of catching Steelhead on the fly will be shared through guidance on fly selection, reading water, mending and casting.
