Elkhorn Creek was listed in Field and Stream as being one of the top 10 trout streams in the country. People travel from all over the country and world to fish the stream and get a glimpse at the beautiful rainbow and brown trout. But due to lack of infrastructure in the old coal mining towns, the Elkhorn suffers from pollution like many Appalachian rivers and streams.
