    Anywhere on the Schuylkill from Philly to Reading.
    For best results, try below the tailraces of any of the dams.

    my cousin and I were talking about going on a road trip down to the philly area to try for some Flatheads. Anybody have a favorite spot that's not to hard to find. My cousin's brother in law lives in Westchester and grew up in philly so I'm sure he could help us find a spot. I don't know if we'll get to it this year with everything else going on, but it could be a fun trip.

    Google maps, use the hybrid version and go from there... it is an amazing way to target a specific area.
