If you are looking for some recommendations on equipment these are some of the items that we think just works.

Western Waters Guide Service could not be more pleased than to be affiliated with the Gorge Fly Shop located in beautiful Hood River Oregon just twenty miles from our lodge. They have been in business for over twenty years providing anglers with top notch service and equipment. Anything that you need for your trip with us can be supplied through them and shipped right to your door. 


Because everyone wants a good deal. The Gorge Fly Shop has some of the deals on the web for you to take advantage of. You will want to check back often because the deals are always being updated.


With spey lined designed right here in the Columbia River Gorge by another Gorge Fly Shop affiliate we find that Airflo lines are what we go to the most. From skating dries with the Rage Compact to chucking big ugly’s with the Skagit Compact Airflo has you covered.

When it comes to fishing in the Pacific Northwest perhaps no piece of equipment is more important then your outerwear. When it comes to keeping you dry we have found nothing more reliable than the products produced by Simms to get the job done.


#FLYSHOPSTRONG Providing top quality rods and reels.

There are a ton of reels on the market and we are not going to say that lamson’s are the best because I haven’t had a chance to try them all. What I can tell you is that I have been using there products for over fifteen years and have never been disappointed. With a reel to match just about any budget you are sure to find one that works for you.
