Raystown Branch Juniata River
The spillway of the Raystown Dam was yielding some walleyes, while smallmouth bass were hitting near the Corbin Road Bridge.
Little Juniata River (Huntingdon County)
Low, clear normal fall conditions were reported as of Oct. 27. October Caddis were hatching, making for decent dry-fly fishing. Slate drakes also were hatching. TCO Fly Shop recommended dry dropper techniques with Slate Drake or caddis dries and basic fall nymphs, such as Green Weenies, Pheasant Tails and Zebra Midges. Other patterns were Green Weenies (12-14), Slate Drake Dun and Nymph (12), Green Caddis Larva (14-18), and October Caddis (10).
