Huntingdon / Mifflin County    
Bass season is here again, and nice size bass are being caught on the Juniata River. Catfish are biting at night on worms and chicken livers. If you are using a PFBC access area, remember to have a valid registration or launch permit for each boat you are using. Swimming and the launching and retrieving of rafts and tubes are prohibited at any part of the access areas.
Juniata County
Boaters and anglers on the Juniata River should check the USGS site to observe current river levels before heading out.  Anglers are catching some nice catfish and carp on the river on night crawlers. 
Perry County
Anglers are catching some nice Largemouth Bass on Holman Lake.  Try 4-inch dark color rubber worms for Largemouth Bass or simply try live night crawlers.  Rainbow Trout are also being caught at the lake.  Trolling with small spinners or paste baits fished on the bottom are working best.

Stevie had a great day fishing with his dad on Holman Lake recently. He caught his first bass on a fly rod and a lot of bluegills on meal worms.

Huntingdon County
Anglers are catching panfish (Crappie and White Perch) on the southern end of Raystown Lake between Shy Beaver and Weaver Falls boat launches.  Fathead minnows fished below a slip bobber, as well as slow rolling 2-inch soft plastic baits, seem to be the best tactics.
Users of the Point Access Area are reminded that a valid launch permit or unpowered registration is required by law to launch or retrieve a watercraft from this Commission owned and controlled access area.  The launching and retrieving of inner tubes and other swim aids is prohibited!
Cumberland County
Anglers are still catching nice trout on the Yellow Breeches.  Morning and evening hours are the most productive.
