In fact, I think a Quill Gordon SUMMIT would be a great way to pull off the "alternative" NC Jam that has been discussed in the last couple years. I would attend an April SUMMIT, but haven't any good information about the hatch, streams or hostels to provide guidance in that regard.


Fixed.

I would also be interested in attending.

Crowd control is the issue. Does your camp have room for tents and a canopy or two?

Yup. We had over 50 people there when we celebrated the 50th anniversary of our camp a while back. There are 8 double beds upstairs, three couches downstairs, lots of floor space, and a yard big enough for tents, etc.

Replied, Jack. I probably should have clarified that "in that area" means "in the same county". Its about 35 miles from Cross Fork. I never notice the drive 'cause when I'm up there, what's a 35 mile drive!? I'm more than willing to help make this happen though, and am willing to reserve the camp!

The other option would be to camp at some place like Ole Bull State Park. Its a REALLY nice park w/ great facilities right along the Kettle Creek. 8 miles from Cross Fork. VERY affordable too, if memory serves me correct.

Hi, I am a beginner fly angler and I spent this weekend fishing Cross Fork, Kettle Creek, and some other small streams in the area. Actually a better description of what I did is hiking up the middle of a stream while waving a stick around in the air, since I didn't catch anything the whole time. Temp in Cross Fork at midday was around 61 and Kettle Creek was mid 60's. Those fish must have seen me coming a mile away in spite of my best efforts at being sneaky. That whole area is beautiful and I had a great time but would have had a better time if I caught a few.

Part of the problem is you hiked up the middle of the stream! You gots to hide in the brush.

I'm really excited about this. I LOVE that area. I cut my teeth fly fishing there, and I've been going up there as long as I could walk.

As per lodging, my vote goes to either Ole Bull State Park or Justin's camp, simply 'cause of distance to Cross Fork. My offer, however, still stands. Just know we'll be doin' some driving.

Concerning the issue of finding reliable info about teh QG hatch, would Phil over at the Kettle Creek Tackle Shop be able to offer us reliable info on this? I always enjoy that store and talking to Phil, but I never went to him w/ specifics about a hatch and timing, etc.

Ole Bull State Park is pretty much packed during QG time.
I make my reservation for 2 sites in January each year for the last weekend of April (Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sat) and rarely can I get two sites next to each other, I'm talking camper sites, not tent sites.
I know that it is worse (tougher to get sites) around opening day.

Just a heads up, Cherry Springs isn't that far north of there, we're talking 15 minutes between the two. It's a star gazers "dark sky" park, but the campground part is separate from the observing field. And so long as your careful to avoid the 2 star parties per year, there's almost always lots of sites available.

It's also a better location IMO. You still got the Kettle watershed close, but you're also better situated for the 1st Fork/East Fork, upper Allegheny, and W. Br. Pine drainages. It's right on the high point that separates those drainages, like a quadruple divide in the heart of Potter County trout country.

Might not be the best place to hold a large get together. But if sites fill up its a fine overflow alternate.
