Jon,

You can get away with either rod.

troutbert is right. For years, Bobby Clouser has had his truck shuttled by the campground. Not sure of cost but it's only a quick call to figure it out.

Yeah I think I'm in, ill use my 9 weight. Thanks Paul for your offer.

Just ordered some top flies and other stuff.

I just got a GPS so driving shouldn't be issue for me any more.

Oh I want to catch a Muskie, what is the likely hood of finding some?(never caught one before)

Here's another campground to consider, if anyone's staying overnight.

Pitmans Riverside Campground, 1 mile east of Millerstown, adjacent to PFBC Greenwood access.

Stayed there back in 2001 and it was a well maintained campground with nice owners.

The Juniata is a first class muskie river but to be perfectly frank catching one takes a lot of time and commitment. If you'd really like a shot at a muskie I'd honestly recommend conventional tackle but keep in mind muskie lures are large and very expensive. As for simply finding one, the odds are better. I'd estimate that of the float trips I've made on this river when the sky and water were clear I typically expect to see a muskie or two. However, clear water and sunny days aren't the best days for hooking muskies but just seeing one of these fish is a thrill. If you're wading certain areas seeing one is a possibility. They average about 30" long but every year there's a fish or two in the upper 40" range that gets caught in the Juniata, often incidentally by guys targeting SMBs or walleyes. I know of a reliable report of a 52" fish released back in 1997. The muskies in this river are very fat (at least every one I've seen). When we link up at the beginning of the day, for those who are new to the Juniata or otherwise interested, I'll put out a brief discussion of some of the hotspots on the river and for those interested in muskies I'll suggest where to look for them if you're floating or wading. I'll definitely spend some time targeting muskies with my 10WT on this trip and if we're lucky and the fishing gods are smiling on us there's a good chance one of us that day will have a run in with Mr Muskie, even if it's just a follow or missed strike.

I'm definitely interested in coming to the Warm Water Jam. It will be good to see you guys again, and to learn some new WW Fishing techniques.

I often use my 7 wt. steelhead setup to fish for Bass, but I understand that most muskie fishing is done with either a 9 wt or 10 wt rod. Is it possible to try after Muskies with my lighter 7 wt setup?

Feel free to make any comments/suggestions as always.

GF,
If I can make the WWjam, maybe we can rideshare.

You can certainly use a 7 weight. The ave musky you'll catch is maybe 35" - not much bigger than a good steely. As long as you can cast the bigger flies (which you can with a 7) and get some wire for those teeth...you'll be good.

I agree with David. A 7WT is fine.
You can certainly handle the average river muskie with a 7WT although if you were going to get a rod exclusively for them and really target trophy fish a 10 or 11WT would be ideal mainly because of the large flies. Tie up some streamer flies in the 5-7" range with some flashy material. These will be large enough to interest muskies and no where near too big for bass (river smallies love big muskie size streamers) while still being castable with a 7WT.

Not if you use a bamboo spinning rod.

I will be bringing a spinning setup and fly gear, assuming I can make it.

No crucifixion. Just buy me a beer. That's the ultimate punishment. I don't think I'll survive it.

Okay, How 'bout anyone using a spinning outfit is obligated to buy a beer for the FFers.

This is PAFF after all.....
