Hunting at the Sandy River Delta – A Seasonal Reminder


Hood River – With the return of fall, the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area reminds the public that hunting is occurring at Sandy River Delta, also known as 1000 acres.  The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife regulates hunting at the site.  The hunting regulations for Sandy River Delta are as follows:


This area, bounded by the Sandy River on the west, I-84 on the south and Columbia River on the north is owned and managed by the United States Forest Service. The area is closed to all hunting, except the portion of the area north and east of the Bonneville Power Administration powerline 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.


The Sandy River Delta is a multi-use recreation area open to a variety of recreation uses including equestrian use, hiking, biking, and hunting in the allowable area.  For further information, please visit our website at
