On our site you will find an online catalog stuffed with some of the best equipment from the best manufacturers money can buy.
Nestled within the valleys of the Cascade Mountains you will find numerous rivers and lakes to try your skills at the sport of fly fishing, targeting: steelhead, salmon, trout, and smallmouth bass. Less than an hour away is the famous Deschutes River, known as one of the best summer steelhead streams in the west. The Deschutes is also home to an amazing strain of red band rainbow that has called this river home for thousands of years.
Along with some of the best equipment, we offer free shipping within the United States on orders over $50, and shipping credits for international customers. Remember, Oregon has no sales tax. Service is our main priority; most items are shipped the same day.

As the angling thought process, technology, and products advance, steelhead fishing is no longer considered a game of chuck and chance. We now have rods designed for specific fishing situations. Open up any fly rod companyís catalog and you will find a vast variety of Spey rods, single hand rods, and now switch rods. As anglers, we can find a weapon perfectly suited to our fisheries. Additionally, the fly line companies have stepped up to the plate with lines built to perform with the new rod designs. Skagit shooting heads for sink-tips and big flies, Scandinavian tapers for a more efficient casting stroke, multi-tip lines for versatility. Additionally, the fly companies have finally realized the need to offer flies designed by the cutting edge anglers of today. More so, the outerwear available today is more advanced than ever. Manufactures are producing more comfortable, longer lasting garments designed with the steelheader in mind.
Steelheadbum.com was created for the serious steelhead angler. The idea was spawned from an obvious need for a species specific web site that catered to those obsessed by the greatest game fish in the world.
Meet the Team
The Gorge Fly Shop team is the backbone of this operation, a culmination of different backgrounds ranging from fly tiers to those who either guide or have guided for years. A mix of Bass lovers to Steelhead Finatics. Outside of running the fly shop while Travis is out chasing steelhead, elk, or his children, they are the folks who keep the wheels turning. This site wouldn't be possible without their dedicated work.
