    Although I have lived in the area for 11 years, I hav enever fished Beltzville or Lake Nockamixon.

    I mainly fish the Schuylkill River.

    The Nock is great for channels 10pm-1am seems best. It doesnt have flatheads.

    The lehigh canal is where the state record channel was caught. It was 35 + lbs. Odd thing though. I've been in allentown since 89', I live 10 min from the lehigh and have never fished it.
