I am stoked. We're buying a place that's about 3 miles to Dodge Park and around 5 to Oxbow Park. This means the Sandy is now my best option to fish..for years to come, hopefully. I need some help. I've always heard that this drift is fine except for the area just down stream of Dodge Park (Pipeline area?) where it can be very tricky. I am a good oarsman (Deschutes Warm Springs to Trout Creek, McKenzie to Armitage-upstream but can't remember put in spot, and Clackamas--all many time) and have a 9' Southfork Bucks pontoon that is quite maneuverable. I'd be willing to walk the boat down the bad parts but really need the most accurate info. I may end up with a guide to take me down and show me the runs anyhow but any info would be great. Also, about how long does it take on average with and without fishing time included? Thanks a bunch.
