Floating for River Smallmouths
The Upper Juniata River is probably one of the most unrated smallmouth bass fisheries in its entire 104 mile length. From the town of Petersburg considered its headwaters to Lewistown where she starts to broaden out, has some great water. In this section of the river there are deep pools, long runs, shallow riffles, good bank cover and lots of rock, all great habitat for smallmouths. If you enjoy throwing subsurface and top water flies to some aggressive predatory fish this trip is for you. Come and experience Pennsylvania's other predatory fish. You won't be disappointed.
