Our Waters

Gorge Fly Shop | Our Waters

There isn't a serious angler out there that doesn't like traveling to fish new water. For most of us, packing for the trip is a ritual alone. Organizing your gear, trying flies, buying extras of everything, & packing it all up in the truck are all part of the process. And then there's the unknowns... What does the river look like? What's the wading like? Should I start with a dry or fish a sink-tip? And most of all, are the fish everything people talk about?

Our featured category under "Our Waters" this month is...

Sandy and Clackamas
The Sandy is Oregon’s oldest “Wild and Scenic” river. Although the outskirts of Portland are nearby, one wouldn’t know it when fishing the breathtaking Sandy River canyon. The Clackamas is another great option in the Portland area. It is a much larger watershed.
Columbia River
The mighty Columbia River could be called the Pacific Northwest Interstate for Anadromous fish. 
The Hood
Just minutes from the fly shop,the Hood River is our home water. Descending from the north face of Mount Hood, it’s a small, technical river with a high gradient. Her steelhead however, are anything but small. 
Deschutes
The wild and scenic Deschutes is a tail-water. Consequently, the river has consistent cold water flow. From Pelton Dam downstream, the river cuts it’s way through 100 miles of immense high desert canyon. The massive basalt walls creates an impressive back drop to fish under.
John Day
At present, the system has one of the last all-wild runs of adronomous fish east of the Cascade Mountains. The John Day River offers some of the best Smallmouth Bass fishing in the country. In 1971, Smallmouth Bass were introduced to the river and since then they have flourished!
Klickitat River
Located only ten miles east of Hood River. Relatively small in comparison to the nearby Deschutes, the Klickitat is an intimate river. Despite it’s size, endless miles of classic steelhead water make this river a steelheader’s dream...
