Troutdale:    Troutdale is located along the western bank of the Sandy River where it merges into the Columbia, approximately 15 miles east of Portland and Vancouver. This is a drier, flat area right before the Columbia River Gorge begins and is a good place for migrating birds to stop and rest on their way up the Gorge to eastern Oregon and Washington.
