Flowing out of the Zirkel Wilderness Area, the Elk River is clean and clear this fall. There are just a few access points to the river starting with Christina State Wildlife Area located about 8 miles out of town. Christina is a 1 mile stretch that provides numerous long runs and solid pocket water. Browns, Rainbows, Cutthroats, Brookies and Whitefish, ranging from 12-18 inches can be found in this stretch of the Elk. The Upper Elk, north of Clark down Seedhouse road, has tons of public water access in the National Forest. Bring a small rod, attractor dry flies and 4x tippet.

The Elk is wide open and a bit muddy. There is still some good fishing with big bright colored flies in the slow deep water. We have had our best luck nymping but have also caught a few on bright streamers striped slow. If you go get out in the morning to avoid the afternoon run off.
