I plan on checking out the following spots and am just keeping a running list here so I don’t forget any. If you happen upon this post and are familiar with any of these spots, or any others I may not have listed, PLEASE let me know by leaving a comment!

Found out of this from this blog post:

Delaware River Canal State Park

Looks like a great spot for bass and pickerel. EPF fished the Lock 5 location and did well.

Horsham Lake

I heard about this lake from a fellow angler yesterday. Will find out where it is.

Sandy Run Park

Some wonderful fish filmed caught here just last year in a youtube video. This is only 25 minutes from my house so worth a shot, though it looks to be very crowded as you can only fish from the fishing pier or a bridge.

Schuylkill River

Tons of spots but the one obvious one that is fairly close to me is the stretch along Port Providence and Fitzwater Station restaurant.

Here’s another location that looks great – EPF did a video revealing this spot showing lots of smallmouth:

This pond is apparently located close to the trout nursery run by Stony Creek Anglers.

Trout Fishing – Stony Creek

Green Lane

Here is a map to the boat rental location.  This is a large body of water so better to view the satellite map and pick out multiple locations to scout.
