Juniata County

Anglers are catching some decent Smallmouth Bass on the Juniata River.  Jerk baits or minnow-patterned flies are working well.  Hellgrammites also are working.  Water temperatures are warm, so fishing early morning or late evening are the best times.  Look for swifter water and deeper water with rock structures.
