If a commitment for lodging is required early, pick a date and let's see if it flies. I'm all for camping too!

I'd love to get some time on Penns, the last time I was there it was blown out so I spent all my time exploring the mountain streams. Man I hope my shift changes by then!

this is true, i do a bit of fishing here each year, the Sinnamahoning, slate run, pine creek, stony lick, spring rn, cross fork, and Kettel. i used to go with a group of my HS teachers, two of my brothers and father would go and a bunch of friends...it was a really good time...there were several of us that saw rattle snakes there especessialy along the Sinnamahoning...my roomate here at school is from Emporium PA, and we'll often drive there (about 3 hrs) on the weekends to deer hunt durring the winters, and trout fish in the spring and fall...i haven't had a chance to break away from school yet this year but i highly recomend this area...just some advice if you've never been there plan on driving a ways to fish, if you're at one stream and the fish aren't turned on, go some where elsel, if you do this you can almost garuntee good fishing all day long, the fish here arent real choosy if it's close to the hatch pattern (most of them have never seen an artificial fly) and all the streams have different hatches at different times, it's a rather unique region to fish...oh one other thing that is really cool about this area, in the spring you'll see so many deer and elk it's nuts, you'll be fishing and they will walk accross a stream 10 to 15 yards away from you, they just don't see poeple often so they don't know to be scared...along with the snakes watch out for the snapping turtles, i caught one that was the size of a saucer sled (not with a fishing pole) and my dad was pissed i loaded it up to take back to camp and show everyone...

Camping - Will find some campgrounds in the area.
Third week of may if JJ doesn't object.
I was thinking a 3 day weekend or possibly 4 with Fri/Mon.
Should give everyone more than enough time to plan ahead.
I'll also mention to the people that own the camp ground that we would like to keep the Bass fisherman seperated by at least 250 yards from us trout fishermen!
Any other suggestions?

If ya'll plan on hitting spring creek, it will probably be something like steelie fishing on the erie tribs during a good run. By that time the fish have gotten really "educated" as well. I never fished Penn's so I can't say. Little Juniata is a good one.
Also alittle North of State College are Pine Creek, Slate Run, Cedar creek, Young Womans' Creek just to name a few.
