Penns, Pine, Elk creeks

I am heading out to central PA with some relatives from out in the Rockies. They want to hit some of the limestone creeks. I thought about hitting Penn's creek or possibly Elk or Pine. Is there one you would recommend over the other?

Out of those 3 only Penns is a limestone stream as far as I know. Even Penns has a lot of freestone influence, especially the further you get down stream. Don't get me wrong, Penns is awesome. I've never fished Pine, or Elk for that matter. I'd be looking at Penns, Big Fishing, or Spring Creek.

The Pine and Elk Creeks in the Penns Creek drainage are fairly small streams and flow through private lands, and there is quite a bit of posting.

Your best bet is to fish Penns Creek in the sections that flow through public lands (Bald Eagle State Forest and PA Fish and Boat Commission).

You can get access at Poe Paddy State Park. There is good camping available there and the nearby Poe Valley State Park.

The access to the lower end of the PFBC stretch of Penns Creek will be affected by bridge repair on Weikert Road where it crosses Cherry Run. That construction is expected to last until sometime in June.

You can still get to the parking area at the lower end of the PFBC stretch by driving over the mountain from Woodward, on a state forest road. It's a fairly rough road, but I've driven it numerous times in a Honda Civic. Just drive slowly, pay close attention, and be aware that logging trucks drive these roads.
