Juniata County

Anglers are catching some Flathead and Channel Catfish on the Juniata River.  Anglers are using live bait (sunfish) and cut bait for the flatheads and the channels are hitting on creek chubs, cut bait and nightcrawlers.

Perry County

Anglers are catching perch, crappies and sunfish at Holman Lake.  Redworms, minnows and wax worms are the live baits of choice.  Small jigs (1/32 oz to 1/64 oz) with small tubes or twisters are also working. 

Larger streams such as the Big Buffalo and Cocolamus Creeks have great fishing opportunities with Fallfish, Sunfish, Rock Bass, Smallmouth Bass and Catfish ready to catch.

Juniata County

Anglers are catching a few Channel Catfish on the Juniata River using cut baits, night crawlers or other stink baits. 

Trout are still being caught on local streams.  Where stream levels are low and water is clear, try making long casts with a spinner due to fish being spooky.  Where the water is deeper and not as clear, try using live baits such as wax worms, redworms, mealworms or paste baits.  Lighter line is recommended.

Perry County

Anglers are catching bass in the creek outflows along both the Juniata and Susquehanna Rivers.  A Musky or two has been hooked on the Juniata River by local anglers only to throw the lure before landing the fish.

Anglers continue to catch some trout on local streams throughout the county.
