Gorge Fly Shop: Unofficial Travel Guide to Hood River

In a little town tucked away in the Pacific Northwest sits a small brick and mortar fly shop ran by Travis Duddles and his team. Located Downtown Hood River, Oregon on 201 Oak St. the Gorge Fly Shop has had its doors open now 22 years. Stop by and say hi and while your visiting you mind as well take a look around.

So you decided to travel the Gorge and visit little ol' Hood River. Now what?

Some of our favorites.

Bagel shop - Morning Grub
A few blocks down from the Gorge Fly Shop is Hood River Bagel (13th Oak St.)

Fishing License (Hunting? Fishing? We'll set you up):
CUP OF JO
Starbucks (on the port), Dutch Brothers (on the heights), McD's Coffee (On the Port or on Cascade St.) - We got most of them just like everyone else, but if your really jiven for some coffee atmosphere and good pastry we're fond of Doppio's and we think you will to. Located 310 Oak St.

GRAB A BEER!
After a day on the river, or an afternoon with the family it's always nice to get away and try a local brew. South of the fly shop and in walking distance is Big Horse Brew Pub located on 115 West State St. A little further walk or short drive still downtown is Full Sail Brewing, be sure to try their Beer Float. And last but certainly not least is Double Mountain Brewery located on 8th Fourth Street.

NON FISHING ACTIVITIES:
Local waters within 30-45min.
