Great looking water, is it private? Also pretty wild brown and what appears to be a wild 'bow.

Is it a section on Spruce Creek? I fished the lower Harpster water on Spruce about five years ago with my wife. It was fun but so artificial in the size and quantity of fish on such a small and narrow creek. I think I caught something like 38 fish in just 2 1/2 days and many were 15" and bigger.

no thats penns creek, down the road from my home.
i pretty much only get to fish penns every day because its so close to me, but i have made it to spring creek and honey creek.
i am learning more about other streams so soon i will see other areas.
i have wanted to check out the george harvey part of spruce creek for awhile, but felt that it would be over fished, thats great you did so wel i may have to go give it a whirl.

I believe the Harpster water is private, but I've fished the Harvey water and you can have a ball there on beetles this time of year.

The Harpster water is private but if you have the loot you can book two - three day excursions with an outfitter. If anyone wants to know the web site PM me.

If your going to make a trip to the harvey water wait till fall or some rain, which ever comes first. As of last sun. it was very low.

Jeff, I hadn't thought of that as I haven't been up this summer. That sounds like good advice given how little water we've had recently. Thanks for following up.
