    i live outside of northampton about 15 mins away from the lehigh river but i fish the delaware for catfish. my grandparents have a house on the delaware river and i do pretty well. if anyone knows the ppl power plant about 8 miles north of easton i fish that area. im pretty good with all types of fishing in this area so just ask if you have any questions. more info on the delaware river is on the NJ page

    yes i beleive thats the power plant is called. recently there was a fly ash pollution problem there.

    im not sure how they bite this time of year or about the warm water discharge because this is deer hunting season, but i would try hilgremites if you can get a hold of any but liver and worms work just fine in the summer, try cut bait also. ive caught cats up to 10# this year out of the eddys and rapids near the power plant there. caught two cats this year at about 28 inchs. not huge but great fight on lighter poles,
