Nothing beats the feel of spring in the air. The trees are blooming, the days start getting longer, and the world seems to come alive with activity. For anglers, the start of spring signals some of the best action of the entire year, with annual migrations and breeding seasons bringing our favorite fish into our sights.
To celebrate the start of the season, we asked our readers to suggest their favorite spring fishing spots. The results just came in – these are the 10 best spots in the country, and Juniata River Valley made the list!
Why did Juniata River Valley make the list?
The Juniata River Valley is a gentle place with real rural charm. It’s a beautiful land of densely-wooded ridges and long sweeping farmland. The valley is hidden away from the major highways that take people to and from the East Coast – and it’s all the better for it! It’s the ideal spot to enjoy a little time in the slow lane.
During the spring, the Juniata River is a top-tier Bass water, rivaling the nearby Penns Creek, just without the crowds! Anglers can kayak their way along the river, and reel in big spring Smallmouth, or wade freestone and limestone streams and catch Trout on the fly.
