If I see trout rising, I'll fish for them, but mainly I concentrate on the smallmouth and largemouth bass and the panfish . Besides the Wissahickon is lot more scenic than Valley or Ridley.



smallies in the wiss can be some of the best fishing!

sometimes there are smallies in the part of valley that runs into the schuylkill.sometimes not too far from big browns .

If they are stocked people already now about them.


Or if they have special regulations.

None of the streams mentioned are exactly secret.

I'm just glad that they didn't include Tacony and Frankford Creeks, or I would've been really upset. Those two are real gems.

Valley Forge seams to have been plagued with multiple problems in the past few years. I don't think I would eat anything from there.

The Neshaminy Creek was named along with the town of Chalfont being name as the headwaters of the creek in the article.

Grab a slice of pizza from the local pizza shops near the stream when you stop by to fish.

As for a trout stream no, it warms up, but bass and panfish yes.

It was a nice article. Will it bring out of state anglers? I don't think so. It might bring some of the local anglers out on the stream.

This area is walking distance from my house and a nice place to catch a few fish on a fly when you don't have the time to drive to a trout stream.

Valley Creek is C&R only.

I picked up the magazine just to see what the article had to say. It was a good article. What I found interesting was that trout were the main emphasis in the segment on the Wissahickon. No mention of the bass and pan fish opportunities. There are bass in Ridley. I've seen them above the dam that starts the FFO stretch and down toward Baltimore Pike. There are also some rock bass that live under the bridge in the FFO stretch like trolls that seem to delight in taking my fly before it gets to any rising trout. A couple of years ago I was walking down Forbidden Drive from the Rex Ave bridge area. A couple visiting from the West were walking up the Drive and the husband stopped and asked if I had any luck. His initial comment was "The last thing I expected to see in Philadelphia was a fly fisherman."
