And for those who haven’t had a chance, it’s a great time to check out the new LJRA website.
The forums are a great place to share stories and information with others, whether they live across the street or across the country.
Individuals can register and participate in discussions concerning a variety of topics ranging from fly fishing, spin fishing, birding and floating to conservation issues, public access and wildlife sightings.
Any topic is welcome as long as it relates to the Little Juniata River or it’s watershed and tributaries.
Other additions include a picture gallery featuring photos submitted by individuals.
The website is also a great place to go to keep up to date on what’s happening with the “Little J”.
Interested individuals can even check for river updates before heading out for the day.
