Little Juniata River Lower Section & Bald Eagle Creek Tyrone Section

General Description

The Little Juniata River is making a comeback with help from the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission and environmental awareness. Throughout the 1960s, raw sewage and pollutants from local mills ran into the Little Juniata from towns above. Cleanup started in the early '70s and today, the Little Juniata is a large river with deep pools, moderate water, and prolific hatches supporting the thousands of fingerlings stocked by the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission each year. This river is one of the finest in the Commonwealth.

Above Tyrone, the Little Juniata is a marginal stream supported by only a few water sources. Once the waterway passes through Tyrone, it runs through limestone cliffs, making it a true limestone river. It continues south to the village of Spruce Creek where it picks up numerous, different sized, limestone springs that help keep its water temperatures down during the hot summer months. In 1996, the PFBC designated 13.5 miles of the Little Juniata as an All Tackle Trophy Trout area.

The river also provides a number of access points for paddlers who come to navigate the riffles and rapids in the Lower section.
