Fishing & Hunting

The Elkhorn Inn is in GREAT fishing & hunting country: McDowell County, WV! We’ve got EXCELLENT fishing and flyfishing for brown and rainbow right at the Inn on Elkhorn Creek, which has been called “THE best wild trout stream in the USA” for its abundance of very large (24″-32″) trout! The Elkhorn Inn is Number 2 on WiseBread’s nation-wide list of “8 Affordable Destimations For People Who Love To Fish”!

Our Orvis Guide fly-fishing guest is quoted in this Charleston Gazette-Mail article, discussing the wild trout he caught in Elkhorn Creek…

“Top Spots for West Virginia Trout Fishing in Game and Fish Magazine.

“More on West Virginia Tout” in Game and Fish Magazine.

Record-breaking trout have been caught in our county, and our many of our fishing guests, including Trout Unlimited members, often catch and release between 30 and 150 fish a day!

In addition, McDowell County offers bow-hunting for deer, shotgun hunting for turkey and bear, trout fishing at several stocked trout streams, and fishing on Anawalt and Berwind Lakes.

All you need to fish Elkhorn Creek is a regular West Virginia fishing license, which can be purchased online at WV DNR or at any Walmart in the state of West Virginia. As Elkhorn Creek is NOT stocked, we strongly promote “catch-and-release” fishing, and highly recommend chest-waders if you will fishing in the creek.
