    i didnt know you did any carp fishing, but across th river from me theres a bunch of 10# and a few bigger, if you go up river theres some huge 20 and some may even get 30 but they are alot more spred out. its easy om the delaware just a plain hook and a handfull of corn works great for me.

    Greenlane Reservoir has alot of carp in it. You can see huge schools of them when fishing off the Knights bridge. and when shore fishing some one usually picks up a few nice ones.

    There is a nice fishing pier off of 25th street in Easton to set up on. A lot of guys go there for cats and carp. The only problem is you gotta haul the fish up 10 or 15 feet over the rails. There are a bunch of ball fileds and stuff back there too. I'ts a nice place to go sit in a lawn chair. I never did well there, but some other guys i used to work with caught stuff down there. Maybe this spring some of the locals could get together down there.

    the Schuykill has a better carpfisher than the delaware. i have caught hundreds of carp on the SKUKE, but none in the Delaware. for more carp info in and around the Philadelphia area, go to fishguys.org. all the info you need.

    peace,

    Hi Guys,
    I'm new here and so glad I found this site. A little known "sleeper" lake which is full of BIG CARP is Speedwell Forge Lake in Lancaster county. It's about 20 mins west of Ephrata. My Wife and I relocated here, and wanted to find a good place to fish and stumbled onto this lake. We saw dozens of carrp "sucking" around the boat ramp, got a can of corn and had a blast! There are some really big boys in there. Lots of Bass, small sunnies, and bull heads too, not sure about any channel cats but I'll let you know if I find them there.
