some nice Smallmouth Bass on the Juniata River using hellgrammites,
shiners and mad toms. The Juniata River conditions currently are low.
The fishing on the Juniata

being caught during the morning and evening hours. Greenwood Lake is
scheduled to be stocked with trout on Thursday, October 19th. The
daily limit is 3 Trout.
Anglers are continuing
to catch good numbers of bluegills at Little Buffalo State Park.
Some Largemouth Bass and catfish are also being caught. Lake is drawn
down, so plenty of shoreline fishing opportunities are available.
