Huntingdon County
Greenwood Lake is scheduled to be stocked with trout on Thursday, October 19th. The daily limit is three trout. Mandatory life jacket wear begins on November 1st on all boats less than 16 feet in length as well as all canoes and kayaks.
Anglers are catching plenty of Rock Bass, Smallmouth Bass and Channel Catfish by fishing at night on the Raystown Branch of the Juniata River. 
Anglers are reminded to consult their 2017 PA Fishing Summary booklet for sizes and creel limits.  Most notable is on page 16 where the daily limit of Rock Bass is addressed for the Juniata River and its tributaries.  Anglers should be aware that the size limit on Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass caught on rivers and streams is now 15 inches as of October 1st and that will soon change for bass caught on lakes effective November 1st.

Juniata County
Anglers are catching some nice Smallmouth Bass on the Juniata River using hellgrammites, shiners and mad toms.  The Juniata River conditions currently are low.
Huntingdon/Miffilin Counties
The fishing on the Juniata River is hard due to the water level being so low. Smallmouth Bass are 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.
Perry County
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.
