Little Juniata River Report


The river is at about normal flow for the summer, that is, a bit low. Summer fishing strategies for the Little Juniata should center around nymphing.  The combination of a Bead Head Green Weenie and a wet ant work quite well.  For variety, use a Slate Drake Nymph or perhaps a Prince Nymph.Summer hatches on the Little "J" tend to be a bit sparse, but Tricos, Slate Drakes, caddis and crane flies, and tiny yellow midges can occur.  Although it is a wide stream, ants and beetles can be surprisingly effective where there is abundant riparian vegetation.
