Coal Country Trout, Elkhorn Creek, WV

Video of Michael Evanko and Todd Hubler fly fishing the Elkhorn Creek in McDowell County, West Virginia. This video was shot on February 3, 2018 on publicly accessible, unregulated water. Miles of the Elkhorn Creek contain populations of wild rainbow and brown trout. Rumor has it that a stocking truck broke down on Rt. 52 in the 1970s and the driver dumped his payload of trout into the Elkhorn. Those fish flourished and populated the entire river system. The Elkhorn Creek has quite a bit of trash in and along its waters. The local TU Chapter holds a clean-up day each year.



Elkhorne Creek...

Fished when warm, stinks like heck from sewage. There is trash everywhere. I caught a ten pound teddy bear. Couldn't pay me to go back there.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
