Sandy River, Oregon
The Sandy River in northwestern Oregon is undoubtedly one of the best maintained urban rivers in the world.  It is our home water.  The Fly Fishing Shop is located in the Sandy River basin.  Recent management emphasis has been to maintain many parts of the Sandy drainage in a wild condition conducive to rehabilitating its divers populations of native salmonids.  All wild fish within the basin are catch and release.  There is evidence that juvenile fish populations are increasing.  The future looks good.
