Hood River – With the return of fall, the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area reminds the public that hunting is occurring at the Sandy River Delta, also known as 1,000 acres. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife regulates hunting at the site.
The Sandy River Delta, bounded by the Sandy River on the west, I-84 on the south and Columbia River on the north is part of the National Forest System and managed by the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area.
This area is closed to all hunting except the portion of land north and east of the Bonneville Power Administration power line. This area north and east of the power line is open to waterfowl hunting with shotgun only. Lands below the mean high water line of the Columbia River or Sandy River are not affected by this regulation.
