    I am thinking that the Delaware river could produce some Channels. Do any of you guys know of any good spots? I am thinking around the 73 bridge or Trenton Falls might be a good place to start. I never fished for Channels in the Del. but know it has some nice ones in it.

    My cousin just told me there is a good spot in a town called riverton its about 10 minutes from the betsy ross bridge that you can bank fish that is suppose to be good he said you catch a bunch of eels though but I but if you cut them up they would prolly work good what do you think?

    There's nothing in that big cesspool but small channels, eels, and white perch!


    Tidaltown is where it's at!

    Easy there George! I wasn't trying to offend anyone.

    That giant cesspool also has big spring stripers, ocean run sturgeon, and flounder!

    they looked like some beautiful cats to me I caught some ugly deformed cats out of the Schuylkill 50 miles upstream from Blacky also I live near Reading, Pa in our watershed where our drinking water comes from my father-in-law caught a cat with a huge orange color tumor on its head nastiest thing I ever saw makes you think a little I wouldn't let one comment bother me but real world things like orange tumor fish in drinking water lakes concern me more

    I would love to come and fish that section of the river. I usually fish around New Hope.

    I had a channel that had some weird growth or tumor on its bottom jaw out of the allegheny. And i know it didnt like to be touched cause she chomped my thumb pretty damn good.
