Fishing at Elk River
Enjoy catch and release fly-fishing for Brown and Rainbow trout along the pristine Elk River.
Running through the Elk River Golf Course is a half-mile of the pristine Elk River. The headwaters of the Elk River begin from the Northwestern slopes of Peak Mountain in Avery County (NC) and end at the Watauga River in Carter County (TN).
Elk River members and their guests enjoy North Carolina catch and release fly-fishing for Brown and Rainbow trout along the stretch of river that navigates throughout the community.
North Carolina's Elk River is a wonderful natural resource and a dedicated trout fishery. Members take their stewardship of this habitat to heart and constantly work to preserve this special source of multi-generational recreation.
An extensive river restoration project was completed by Elk River Club in 2007 and additional selective deepening in the fall of 2012. Daily feeding and monitoring programs help ensure the health of the stream and fish.
The lakes and ponds on the golf course also provide wonderful opportunities for young fishermen. Fly fishing at Elk River allows members time with their children, grandchildren, and guests to relax, enjoy the vistas and reminisce about simpler times.
