Latest Fishing Report

Stream: Little Juniata

Date of Update: 3/29/2023

Author: TCO State College Staff

Highlight: LJ is still high making wading difficult. Grannoms are starting to show.

Stream Level: LJ is 584 cfs, median is 690 cfs

Water Temp: mid 40's

Clarity: off color/clearing

Fishing Overview: Little J has been blown the past few days. Water is dropping and I expect that grannoms will be showing up this week. Olives and little black stone have been present as well

Specifics and Tips: As we get into the grannom hatch fishing a pupa or swinging a wet fly can be a very productive technique. Most fish will feed heaviest in the riffles and faster water.

Conservation Note: ANGLERS VISITING OUR AREA: Specifically those of you who just fished the Delaware River (or other streams in the NY Catskill Region), the Farmington in Connecticut, or Maryland's Gunpowder River, Please clean your boots and waders with a diluted bleach solution OR hot water(must be over 140 degrees f) and laundry detergent - It must soak for at least 30 minutes to be effective. DIDYMO has been identified in these watersheds. Another option is to purchase a second pair of boots and waders to wear only in infected waters. It's the only sure way not to spread DIDYMO. Please be responsible - Don't spread DIDYMO TO Central Pennsylvania!
