My buddies and I spent a long weekend at Elk Springs Resort recently. It was my first visit. They kept telling me how impressive their fly shop was. Having just got back from fly fishing The Smokeys and visiting the Orvis store, I was skeptical about their proclamation. Their description of it as impressive was an understatement. This is one...

If you like fishing, try the "pay ponds." If you can walk, your can catch trout! EZ PEEZEE. The good news is that you do not need to purchase a license. The bad news is that you have to keep everything you catch - at $5 per pound.

Spent the weekend in the NASCAR Hippie cabin. Great for two people. The room looked new and was very clean. The food at Ellie May's Restaurant was amazing. Going back when there is snow on the ground for another weekend away from busy life!

We arrived at the stream, ready to fish for the elusive rainbow, but stopped first in the lodge and fly shop. The staff & guides were personable, competent and most willing to help. On the lower level was a comfortable lodge with great food and a comfy area to sit and read while my husband fished. There was free WiFi,... More

This is an impressive shop by most any standard. Wide selection of tackle, rods, and gear. The fly selection is most appropriate for "east of the Mississippi," but that's just where you are! This shop would rival many in much larger and more substantial areas of the country. Pricing seemed very reasonable considering the isolated nature of the situation. Clearly... More

Elk Springs has everything to get you onto the river and get you into fish. Top notch service and knowledge that you will not find any where else. Years of local experience on the river and with the local hatches. They have all the gear you need or supplies for you to tie up your own Elk River candy!

They have a huge selection of trout flies. Their clothing is very expensive, but normal for a tourist location I guess.

Very knowledgeable staff. Most of the flies were tied by their very own staff (fly fishing experts).

I just spent a Thursday - Sunday at Elk Springs. This is my 3rd year to the resort and each year the place really impresses. If you wanna fly fish or just get away from it all this is the place you want to go!
