You simply cannot find a better place for trophy trout fishing than Harman’s/WV Tourism

It’s the best of both worlds, the majesty of nature and the luxury to provide the utmost comfort for modern times. For the past 80 years, family owned Harman’s Log Cabins transformed into Harman’s Luxury Log Cabins to meet this need and raise the bar to create awesome memories. Although it’s just two and a half hours from Washington D.C., it’s a whole different world. That relatively quick ride takes you from the concrete jungle to a tranquil, natural setting where your mind is cleared, replacing stressful thoughts of work with peaceful gazing at Mother Nature’s creations. And you don’t need to give up on your comforts. Enjoy luxury in the midst of nature. And it’s surprisingly affordable.

The views from the cottages are breathtaking.

Situated in the Monongahela National Forest of West Virginia with almost 2 miles of private access trophy trout stream in Hopeville Canyon, the location is ideal to view the abundant wonders of nature. Stunning natural views are everywhere; the cliffs of the Hopeville Canyon, the peaceful North Fork River, Dolly Sods Wilderness area, Spruce Knob, Seneca Rocks, Black Water Falls, Smoke Hole Caverns. There is beauty everywhere you look. Harman’s is the outdoor enthusiast’s dream, especially for fly fishing, hiking, birding, horseback riding, mountain biking, canoeing, rock climbing, whitewater rafting, skiing, golfing, hunting, wildlife viewing, stargazing and weekend getaways.

Trophy fishing

The fishing at Harman’s simply can’t be beat. More than a mile and a half of private access trophy trout water is at your doorstep. All fishing is strictly catch and release and fly fishing is encouraged. Need some help or supplies? Harman’s offers a full-service fly shop on-site, along with professional guide service with advance reservations. Taking some courses, listen to the experts and then take that knowledge to the North Fork River for rainbow, brown, brook, tiger and golden trout, which are measured in pounds rather than inches. There are a lot of 10-pounders and plenty in the 3-to-5-pound range. Harman’s team, with years of experience, provides an optimum fly fishing adventure. If you know of a better place, we’d be interested to hear it!
