Ground Breaking News

01.3.19 UPDATE

12.27.18 UPDATE

In these next couple of photos we are excited to show things are progressing and coming together quite nicely as Travis looks upon the progress as walls are now erected. The first photo below will be the shipping room. Stair case and storage room below the stairs are yet built. Office space to the right where a open window will allow online orders to be efficiently processed and sent to the shipping room. Down the hall more office space and a break room followed by the showroom. Second photo below is just a narrow view of the showroom. Double door entry to the left (unseen) to the right the checkout counter. Behind Travis will be the hallway back to the photo above.

Interior walls erected!

Floors are done! Walls have begun.

A stable foundation

Concrete is finished! This is a huge step forward. Having this new level floor, (without carpet) is going to bring a refreshing change to store and staff.

Old meets New

In this update we introduce where the old meets the new! What your looking at in the above photo will be future home to a showroom, office space, a much larger stock room and much more. Integrating the old timber with the new. The gravel is laid and provides the base for our foundation before the interior walls go up.

Gorge Fly Shop is moving
Coming Soon. To an angler near you.
In early November, Gorge Fly Shop started work on what will be our future home. Just minutes away from busy downtown Hood River with plenty of parking for fully outfitted fly fishing rigs and travelers alike.

Oh Yeah, and our parking will be free!

Just a few notes about what is going on...
If you've ever visited the current location of "The Gorge" you know we outgrew it several years ago. The search for a new location started a few years ago. We tried to stay in town but just couldn't find space that could suit our retail needs as well as our growing e-commerce needs. 

It was then that Travis started to think outside the box. What else can we make work for us. Our answer was sitting, waiting, nestled in a little business complex just off highway 35. With easy access and room to grow the decision pretty much made itself. 

While this building appears modern it's actually quite old with a rich history. A history of which the Travis' family is well aware of. As we move forward we will be sharing this history with you. 

We thank you for your continued support and wish to share this excitement for future great things at The Gorge Fly Shop.


  1. Although the iconic location will be missed, this move totally makes sense. I know where I'll be spending lunches at, lol.

  2. Thanks Mike! We are looking forward to sharing the ride as progress continues and can't wait to open the doors.

  3. I've looked a couple times, maybe I missed it, but I've never seen where you actually say where the new location is/will be, other than "Off of Hwy 35". Any details there?

  4. Thanks for the interest. We actually haven't given specific details out on purpose due to the major construction taking place on sight. Stay tuned! We are very close to sharing the new location as things progress.
