Little Juniata River Report

Water levels on the Little Juniata are finally creeping toward normal. Let's hope the rainfall predicted for this time does not make it too high to wade comfortably. Like the other waters of Central PA, the popular mid-season hatches are winding down. Sulphurs will still be seen sparsely, but Cahills and Slate Drakes and caddisflies and crane flies will be more important on an ongoing basis. If you work the tree-lined areas and banks, terrestrials can be effective, too. My usual prescription for summers on the river is a wet black ant trailed behind an appropriately-sized Bead Head Green Weenie. It is a deadly combination of garish and subtle.
