Counter jungling is easily my favorite role to play in the game and I'd honestly say it was more impactful in season 1 largely due to jungle champions being much lower health while doing initial clears allowing for kill opportunities.

Season 2 had less kill opportunities but you could counter jungle more easily and at least be somewhat effective with a quick smite steal of the large wraith.

I'm not sure how its going to go but in season 3 it seems there may be more opportunities for kills due to the increased jungle difficulty but it will perhaps be harder to steal exp, due to large wraith being worth less (comparative to the other camps) and also having more hp (perhaps it won't just be smiteable anymore).

The above is speculation of course. How has counter jungle playtested in the new jungle?
