Huntingdon County
Our Wish Foundation
On May 20th, Our Wish Foundation of Central PA gathered at Raystown Lake for their annual Child's Wish Fishing Event. Weather was cloudy and cool, but fishing was hot for these young anglers.   Special thanks to local bass anglers who served as boat captains for the day and made several wishes come true!
Juniata County
Water levels are excellent and temperatures have cooled down.  Local trout streams where anglers are catching trout include Delaware Creek, Cocolamus Creek and Lost Creek.  Look for structures or deeper holes for holdover trout from this season’s stocking.

Trout streams have excellent water levels and stocked trout are still being caught.  Try fishing some areas away from the road side and look for structures such as undercut banks, fallen trees and deeper holes.
