Although the entire river can be fished, the most popular section is the last couple miles before the Lake Erie confluence, typically below the SR5 bridge just north of Lake City, known as the Lower Elk Creek.

Overall, Elk Creek - Lower Section is the 46th most popular fly fishing river of all 49 fly fishing spots in Pennsylvania.
