The Fly Fishing Shop was founded 1981 by Patty Barnes and Mark Bachmann. Our store is located to give easy access to many fine trout, bass and shad waters plus numerous year round steelhead and salmon rivers. The surrounding rivers and lakes drain into the Columbia River and the Pacific Ocean. Our home water is Sandy River basin, much of which is designated as a wild fish sanctuary. Angling regulations require catch and release of all wild trout and steelhead. Wild fish populations are growing healthier.
