The dead of winter is the time to daydream about fishing some of PA's premier trout streams. Join us in January when guide Bill Anderson talks about the Little Juniata's transformation “From Sewer to Class A” trout stream. Bill has fished the Little J since 1978 and knows it well, having written articles about it as well as his recently-released book “Trout Boomer & the Little J”. Those who know this stream love it and its hard-fighting brownies. Come join us and daydream about warmer weather and your next visit to the Little J. Bill will be bringing copies of his book for sale.
