More about the Elk River: The upper Elk River is a geological marvel: A subterranean network of caves, streams and waterfalls. According to legend, the underground Elk was formed in 1896 when a hole opened up in the stream bed and simply swallowed the river. Spelunkers frequently explore the dark side of the Elk, but do so at their own risk.
The Elk River traverses the central heartland of West Virginia, covering regions little changed by industrialization and urbanization. Tradition survives here, the watershed harboring authentic mountain musicians, dancers and craftspeople. Elk River was celebrated in a classic 1940 book, Tale of the Elk, written by W.E.R. Byrne, a lawyer, sportsmen, and raconteur who fished and camped along the river’s length in the company of such colorfully named characters as ‘Bearskin Bill’ Hamrick and ‘Squirrely Bill’ Carpenter. According to historian Roy Bird Cook in his preface to ‘Tale of the Elk’, the river’s name derives from the Shawnee designation as “river of plenty fat elk”.
The Elk River is the best-all-in-one river in WV. It is one of the best kept secrets in terms of fish population, exceptional diversity of fish as well to being home to rare invertebrates, including crayfish found nowhere else in the world. Brook, Brown and Rainbow Trout are able to reproduce here. Other fish include: catfish, bass, bluegills, sunfish, walleyes, muskellunge, perch, gar, shad, hogsucker, suckers, crappies, darters and dace. This region also hosts other bounties of beauty. The mountains, mountain laurel, trees, flowers and of course the majestic Bald Eagle, Hawks, Owls, Kingfishers, Osprey, Great Blue Herons, Ducks and migrating birds, the mighty beaver, mink and even painted turtles. Black Bears and Deer also roam freely in our wildnerness.
