Sandy Creek (Jefferson County)

Sandy Creek - Monitor Mill Road

Body of Water:
Sandy Creek

Key Species:
Salmon (Chinook), Steelhead, Trout (Brown & Brook)

“Its headwaters contain holes and runs separated by shallow riffs.  Downstream of Adams it becomes flat water.  Around Woodville it enters a low gorge and slides down a clean, gentile, 2 mile-long slope whose broken floor creates violent backwashes, slicks, shallow pools, and runs.  It feeds Lakeview Marsh Wildlife Management Area’s Floodwood Pond.” — Fishing Western New York

“This creek averages 15 feet wide and flows into North Sandy Pond … Late fall through March, steelhead enter during high water, reaching all the way to the hamlet of Sandy Creek.  They take egg sacs and egg patterns.  The best time to fish is when the creek is murky and too high to wade across.” — Fishing Western New York
