Elk River Guide Service, WV

Overview

Elk River Guide Service has been in business for over 10 years. We specialize in guided trout and smallmouth bass trips in southeastern West Virginia. We also provide week-long and weekend trips and schools.

Region/Terrain Where You Fish

Elk River's guides provide services in all of the coldwater fisheries in eastern West Virginia. Streams range from small high-country water to mid- to large-sized rivers. Most of our trips are walk and wade, but we do offer float trips on larger water in the mid- to late-summer months.

Typical Weather by Season

Elk River fishes year-round and can accommodate your needs depending on weather conditions. Our fishing area provides four complete seasons, much like most of the mid-Atlantic region.

Itinerary

Sample of Typical Itinerary

Our full-day trips are 7-8 hours in length. They include a guide, packed lunch, and specialty flies for the stream or river. The trips begin at Elk River Inn and Restaurant located in Slatyfork, West Virginia. Guided day trips are recommended for 1-2 clients.

Species

Species You Fish for by Season

Brown, rainbow, and wild brook trout year round.

Gear

What Should Customers Bring?

Fly-fishing gear unless they need to rent. Anglers could also bring sunscreen and clothing depending on the season. We rent waders, rods, reels, and wading footwear.
