Fishing the Elk River WV: Feb 9, 2016



Tracy McClain:

Tracy is a guide, fly tying instructor and casting instructor with Elk Springs Resort, Monterville, WV. Tracy has spent years chasing brook trout and browns in remote mountain streams, and fished in Colorado, Montana, Wyoming and California before settling in WV. The remoteness of Pocahontas County is a setting for true back country fly throwing.

Tracy also fishes for Musky, Smallmouth, and Rainbows, but his first love is the back country streams of West Virginia. His PowerPoint presentation will cover fly fishing on the Elk River and fly fishing opportunities in Pocahontas and Randolph Counties of West Virginia.
