Elk river and Elk Springs resort, West

resort property runs into a 2.0 mile catch and
release area, so there is plenty of fishing within
walking distance. I saw trout here over 20 inches
that will provide a thrill for you.
Spacious and clean cabins, a beautiful lodge and
a courteous staff all nestled in the relaxing
mountains of West Virginia is what you will find at
Elk Springs Resort. I never slept better. Wade in

fly shop and a knowledgeable guide on the
The river emerges here after running underground for 6 miles.
