“Trout Fishing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2006

We are trout fishers, and visited ESR in May. Had a wonderful experience. Our Guide, Bill, led us into about 5 rainbows over 20" and a bunch over 15 " in a two day period - all catch and release.
John and Marcia, property managers, proved wonderful hosts, and competent cooks/bartenders.
Recommend you NOT stay at the Ellie May cabin, which has no running water/toilet facilities. There are two "island" cabins that should be very comfortable, and there was a new lodge under construction which would provide a number of rooms for rent (but we did not see the rooms).
We would rate this facility WELL above average - with improved menu/bartending, it would be excellent.
[--] Tight Lines!!

Elk Springs Resort is situated on the Elk where the river emerges from a four mile hiatus in underground caves... thus, the water is a trout friendly 55 degrees year round. The trout were rising the entire two days we were there and the staff did a great job figuring out what they were eating. The staff really bent over backwards for us and made us feel welcome. It was this hospitality that gaurantees my family and I will be back to visit the gang at Elk Springs Resort as often as we can!

I've found a treasure for anyone who loves fly fishing and great accomodations east of the Rockies. I've done the West and this matches up. The lodge is located at the head of the Elk River in Eastern West Virginia. The river offers up 16-20" browns and rainbows but you have to fish the small stuff. The lodge just opened and is still undergoing final touch-ups, but is beautiful. There's also cabins on the river. John and Marsha are great hosts and they offer lessons, guides and great friendship. Snowshoe Resort is close by so there's always something to do for everyone. My only regret in writing this review is that once this place catches on, I'll have to book a year in advance. Their Web address is: elkspringsflyshop.com.
