Sandy River Guided Fly Fishing Trips

Sandy River Steelhead Guide Mark Bachmann landing a steelhead from the Sandy River in Oregon

"We provide boat access to the best best parts of the Sandy & Clackamas Rivers. These reaches offer incredible beauty. The Clackamas is an urban river, but well kept and is the perfect size for Spey rod fishing.
On Sandy River trips we fish in the oldest designated "scenic river" section of river in the state. Add bright, wild, native steelhead & spring Chinooks, combined with ample runs of hatchery fish of both species, and you can see why this is one of the favorite floating/fly fishing adventures in Oregon".
Boats are used for transportation, but most fishing is done while wading. A variety of fly fishing techniques are productive. Both single hand and Spey rods are used. We realize that many anglers don't have a lot of experience in fly fishing for steelhead. Your trip can be a crash course in how to catch steelhead/salmon with a fly. All you have to do is ask. Your guide is very experienced in teaching single-hand and two-hand fly rod casting, presentational skills, wading and fly selection.

Sandy River Oregon float trip prices are $500 per boat. Daylight to dark is always an option. Some gates close at legal sunset, and control take-out times. Hot lunch, snacks, and soft drinks are furnished. Fishing formats can be tuned to fit your personality. Some anglers are aggressive; want to be the first boat on the water, and play hit and run all day. We can do that. We’ve rowed in the dark before. Other anglers have a more relaxed style. We know how to arrange that too. Having your own private school is always an option on any trip. We have acquired a huge collection of brand new Spey rods made by Sage, G. Loomis, Beulah, Echo and Temple Fork Outfitters just for you to use when fishing with us. They are equipped with the latest reels and lines. Each outfit is designed to be the ultimate tool for a specific angling situation. This can add greatly to your experience. We have the best equipment in the game.
