Trophy Trout Fishing

At Harman's Luxury Log Cabins

Harman’s offers over 1 mile of private access trophy trout stream, providing anglers the opportunity to fish for beautiful trophy trout. Our management plan has developed with years of experience to provide our guests a once in a lifetime trout fishing adventure.

Fly Rod Chronicles, the hit show on the Outdoor Channel, was born right here at Harman’s Luxury Log Cabins and filmed several seasons in our private stream.

Professional Fly Fishing Guides

Can be booked at our office in advance of your stay. Call 800-436-6254 for a guide.  We must schedule a guide.

Winter Trout Fishing

  • December, January, February – We stock at least once a month.

Spring Trout Fishing

  • March, April & May – We stock at least twice a month.  March is the month we re-load the stream with very big trout.
  • March 1st Week – During spring, our largest number of trout are stocked the 1st week.  This trout stocking is used to re-load the stream with large trout.

Summer Trout Fishing

  • Early Summer – The stream is stocked Memorial Day weekend or the first week of June.  This is the last stocking for the summer.
  • June – The first two weeks of June provide the best long day top water dry fishing.
  • Mid Summer – Harman’s does not stock from June 15 to August 15.  The high summer temperatures and lower water conditions are typically life threating to our trout.  We recommend early morning or late evening fishing only, as well as very quick release.  High temperatures and low water conditions from July 1 to August 15 can be deadly to many of the trout in our stream.
  • Late Summer – The stream can be stocked the last week of August if water conditions permit.  This stocking depends strictly on weather and water conditions.

Fall Trout Fishing

  • Early Fall – The stream is typically stocked Labor Day weekend or early September. September is a month that we load the stream with trout. We stock the most fish the early part of September. We re-load the stream with very big trout as soon as water volume permits.
  • September can be a low water month which may delay stocking.
  • October & November At the beginning of the month and mid month.

Stream Identification Private Access 1 & 2

Private Access Area 1 This private access section begins at the entrance to Harman’s and ends at the big rock cliff above log cabin #15. Both spinning tackle with artificial lures and fly rods are permitted on this section.

Private Access Area 2 This private access section begins above the rock cliff at cabin #15 to the upper riffle at the 3rd big hole. Both spinning tackle with artificial lures and fly rods are permitted. This may change without notice to fly fishing only or may be rented for a private executive retreat without notice.

Access to private access area 2 is via the road behind cabin #20 and #18.  This road may be traveled with a 4X4 vehicle.  Be aware, this road is to be used at you’re your own risk.  We use it to stock the upper property, so a 4X4 vehicle can easily use this road.  At the end of the road, fisherman can use hiking paths upstream to the 3rd big hole.  Much of my favorite water is on Section 2.
