Harman’s Private Stream Access

Harman’s proudly features nearly two-miles of free private stream access along the North Fork South Branch Potomac River, providing outstanding West Virginia catch-and-release fly fishing opportunities for only our angling guests. During the spring fishing cycle (March, April, and May), our private stream is teeming with trophy-sized trout.

The stream is divided into two areas, beginning at the entrance of Harman’s and winding throughout the property with a backdrop of lush forest and stunning rock cliffs. These divided areas grant our fishing guests optimal space to enjoy a day out in the water and plenty of opportunities to catch fish.

All of our guests are provided with an identification permit for their time fishing and are provided free of charge to all staying guests.

Ample West Virginia Fly Fishing Opportunities

At Harman’s Luxury Log Cabins, guests will have the opportunity to catch trophy trout throughout the spring fishing cycle. During the spring season, the North Fork River is packed with trophy trout, and guests are treated to outstanding fishing for both spinning tackle or fly rods.

It’s a good idea to keep an eye on the mayfly hatch schedule, as the trout become accustomed to the hatch cycles of specific mayflies. This is can be crucial for anglers deciding on specific flies to use during the time of their fishing visit.
