LEVEL 4 Trip
Elkhorn Creek is a premier smallmouth stream in Central Kentucky, East of Frankfort. Lighter weight 4, 5, and 6 weight fly rods are appropriate. Drys, poppers, nymphs, and streamers will all take fish. We will park and camp at the Still Waters Campground Primitive Campground for the take out and shuttle to the upstream launch. Depending on the number of participants, we will either self-shuttle and/or use a shuttle service. Primitive camp sites cost $27.00 per night, 2 tents per site (split the cost). RV spots cost $35.00 per night. You should pay for your own fees and get a parking pass at the office. Bring your own food and drinks. Shower house is on site.
The Elkhorn Creek trip is a float trip, with wet wading opportunities around the many rapids that are encountered. Canoes, kayaks, and inflatable pontoons can all be used on the creek. Caution must be used around the frequent class 1 (or with higher water class 2) rapids on the creek.
The shuttle trip takes about 15 minutes and the 6-mile float and fishing trip back to the campground takes about 6 hours. For more information on the creek, see the Stream Information section of the website.
Due to the nature of the float trip, there will be limited opportunities while on the water for beginner instruction but experienced members will be happy to answer questions in camp. At a minimum, participants should be comfortable using small craft in a moving stream where the danger of an upset and the possibility of losing equipment is real.
