: Guyandotte and Coal rivers A few reports of very large muskies caught and released from the Elk, and Coal Rivers. Be sure to handle them carefully at this time of the year and return them to the water quickly due to warm water temperatures, which reduces the chance of full recovery after being caught if left out of the water for extended periods of time. The Guyandotte and Coal Rivers look very good the past few days for a float due to water released from R.D. Bailey Lake and recent rains in the Coal River watershed. A float through would be no problem with minimal areas to walk a kayak or duckie through. Justice to Wylo would be a good float to try right now for example. Try small soft plastic baits and/or surface lures for explosive topwater strikes.
