Closest options I can think of are the wissahickon, or the ponds down in fdr park. I've seen some in the canal up near manayunk too, but the towpath (ie backcasting space) can get crowded.

Aside from those, any of the bigger lakes or warmer creeks in the region should have ya covered. Shoot me a PM if you wanna get out sometime...I'm not too far away.

Yeah, the Wiss has tons of Sunfish...Redbreasts mostly...not actually Bluegills, but just as much fun and prettier to look at too IMO. You won't catch them until it gets a bit warmer out though...60-65 deg water temperature is about the point where the fishing for them picks up.

I fish PennyPack Park all the time. I have caught everything from Stripped Bass to carp. Many times out I have caught over 150 fish just on top water poppers alone. Just this last year I figured out that if move the top water popper at a certain speed I will have a day of Small Mouth Bass vs Sunnies and Bluegills.
