Smallmouth Bass are still being caught on the Juniata River using hair jigs.  Hair jigs should be fished slow in colder temperatures.  Dark color hair jigs are working best. 


JANUARY 9, 2019

Juniata County

Anglers continue to catch some nice Smallmouth Bass during the winter months on tube jigs and hair jigs fished very slowly.  Water levels are still higher than normal, so fishing along the edges or stream outflow areas are producing the best results.
