The perfect gift for the train-lover in your life!

Bring (or send) your fly-fishing fanatic to the Elkhorn Inn for a great weekend of fishing Elkhorn Creek, which has been called “the best wild trout stream in the USA”! The $395 Fishing Package includes:
Elkhorn Creek is full of brown and rainbow trout, averaging 24″-32″, but it is NOT stocked, so we promote “catch-and release” fishing. We also suggest wearing chest-waders if you will be fishing in the creek. You can also fish from the bank with a regular rod and the bait or lures of your choice. All you need to fish Elkhorn Creek is a regular WV fishing permit, which may be purchased online on the WV DNR website, or at any Wal-Mart in West Virignia.

The perfect gift for the two of you: a fun, romantic getaway in the mountains of southern WV!
