OK, so here is my review, less the pictures since I dunked my digital camera in the drink the last morning. My dad has pics and I will try to get some to post later.
Accomodations::, 10 out of 10
We had two bedrooms, 1 and 1 1/2 baths, A/C, fridge, Hot Tub, 2 TVs with lots of channels, a washer and dryer, microwave, grill and towels and linens provided. The cabin was very clean!! All the comforts of home and the use of the dryer was good since it was light rain off and on for the entire trip. Highest marks for the cabin!!
Location was 150ft from the river.
Staff was extra nice too.

Fishing: 11 out of 10!
Much like SBecker explained in his description. This isn't just a mowed yard and kid fishing. There are fish there and they have been put there BUT they do require an element of skill to catch. We asked for directions to the 3rd hole. The directions were vague but my father (72) and I managed to make it there in about 1 hr or so of bushwhacking. I was treated to 2 fish well in excess of 20 inches!
This place is as challenging as you make it. We caught every fish on the surface by head hunting.
This is the first time I've ever had to fight a trout on my drag and I needed to do it 5 or 6 times for 10+ minutes while trying to follow up and down the stream without falling. The current is very strong and the water is very difficult to wade. Staff and spikes recommended for sure.

I will be calling this week for time in the fall with my wife after we say goodbye to our daughter who is going to college in August.

Dad and I will be going next May. We hope to have two other close friends join us too. This is too good to not share.

Be patient please, I will try to get pics posted soon.

Thanks to Magi123 and all the staff of Harmons for a GREAT time! We WILL return!

Glad I am not the only one that thought the fish screamed through the water like their ass's were on fire.

The fight in the fish was CRAZY. I never have fought a fish off the drag before like that with several looong runs. I was on a new 4wt rod so it was a challenge!!
Every fish I caught was on a dry. Bugs started popping after lunch both days but that was likely due to the rainy and drizzly weather. I tried to nymph fish but the current was raging and it is deep deep in many spots. I was lobbing huge amounts of weight but nothing worked. I enjoy the dry catch twice as much anyway.
