Can anyone recommend a good place for smallmouth ffing on the Schuylkill? I will be wading.
Preferably upstream of Pottstown.
Thanks.

Long time ago I used to like to fish between Shoey and Mohrsville. Closer to Mohrsville. I caught them on white streamers. There were a ton of them in there.

The river park in Birdsboro is a decent place. Its easy wading, decent flow. Alittle tight on the back cast, but doable.

I know where Birdsboro is, not sure about the river park location. I have fished the Gibraltar area the last two summers with the spinning rod with little success. Maybe I'll have to spend a little more gas money and head further upstream.

I probably wouldn't travel to fish as far south as Phoenixville if I were you, but I've got into some decent fish there. Quite a few of 2lb fish and there's some broken water to dead drift and swing streamers...

That's a good article. Those fish they were mentioning two years ago should be a nice size by now. I'm sure this year's weather hasn't helped.

Rat - The term "great smallie water" is pretty relative. From what I've read about the Schuylkill river and seen myself, I'd classify it fair to good at best. Definitely not great.

I'm not looking for a fishing hole, I'm looking for a town or area.

Okay,lets just say there are sections of it that are great. Now I can PM you with a name of a town near some of the better water.
