Raystown lake

Recommended Posts

Probably headed there weds for some fishing. I have never fished there before and going to fish from the shore lines l. Was looking for some advice on where to go. No need to give up secret spot just an area to get some bass, cats, basically anything!

Unfortunately it's a tough lake to fish from shore because most of the shoreline is so steep, lack of access, and the near-shore areas can get pretty weed choked. 

There is a pier at the Aitch access area. The Tatman run area is where the beach is at, I see some people fishing near here sometimes. At Snyder's Run, there is a path that goes around the cove, and there are some overlook areas people will fish from. Also, if you stay on Route 26 for awhile (Going towards the lake from Huntingdon), you will eventually see a left for Route 994/ Old Plank Road. Here, there are a couple of bridges where the road goes over the lake, there are a couple of areas around these where people will walk down to fish.

A nearby alternative that may be a bit better suited for shore/ wade fishing is the Juniata River a few miles below Raystown on Route 22, near the town of Mapleton. There are some areas to pull of and walk down. It's a great area for smallmouth fishing, as well as panfish and some walleye. 

Good luck.
