For Slatyfork Section of Elk River
The Natural Resources Commission approved an area description revision for the Slatyfork section of the Elk River Catch and Release Area in Pocahontas County at their quarterly meeting on February 13, 2005 .
The revised regulation, effective immediately, will now read:
4.6-mile section from the junction of Big Spring and Old
Field forks downstream to the mouth of Dry Branch
including Props Run and Big Run. Access is by foot
from county routes 219/2 on the north and 219/12 on
Reference to “and all tributaries entering between these boundaries except Laurel Run” was removed by the Commission's approval of the revised regulation.
New signs describing the catch and release area will be erected at the upper and lower boundaries as soon as possible. Additionally, signs identifying Props Run and Big Run will be placed so anglers will know the location of these streams.
