If you're a boater, you can give the Delaware & Skuke below the Art Museum a shot. The Delaware has a less than average population of Bass, but has fishable populations of Musky and Stripers as well. Beware, it's big water, it can get rough and there is a lot of commercial traffic out there. In the future if you land here, PM me for specifics on the Delaware, it was my home waters for many years and I've logged a few hundred trips there. See the PFBC website for descriptions of other local lakes in nearby counties, again Chester County would be a good bet. If you have the cash, get a membership at Van Sciver lake. It's run by Waste Management. Fishing can be decent there.
There's always that state that's over the bridge, I can't speak for the fishing there. I stay away from there, the judge in Penns Grove told me to never step foot in their state again. Some years later, a judge in Edison told me the same thing.

To be perfectly honest, the fishing around Philly sucks.
I beg to differ.

I regularly fish the Flats, the Potomac, Gaston, Santee and Seminole. Compared to Many waters on the east coast, fishing in and around the city is the pits. I've fished plenty of tournaments on the Delaware, a lot of times 10-12 lbs can get a win. Lunkers rarely exceed 4 lbs. Venturing out of the city, anglers can do well.

BTW, the Delaware & Skuke don't flow into the suburbs, they flow into the city. The only way they would flow into the suburbs is if water was able to somehow run uphill and backwards.
True. My mistake. But, I think he got the idea I was trying to convey.
I have fished those places as well. I have caught many nice fish from the Schuylkill. Just gotta know when and where to go.

There have been some monster cats coming out of it in the last several years. It's only 10 minutes from my house. I've been fishing it since the early 60's. It's come a long way since then. Sorry for ranting on the OP's thread. I'm bored.

There is a TV show called City Limits Fishing on .vs which does an episode on Philadelphia.
The Jersey shore is an hour ride away if you like salt water, buses and trains go from Philly to Atlantic City several times daily.

I'm definitely limited to the banks since I don't have a car, and a boat is wayyyyy out of the question. Same goes for that membership to the Penn Warner Club. It sounds great, don't get me wrong but that kind of money is not worth it (I don't know if it's a one time charge or not but either way it's not happening).
Are there any solid (and I use that term loosely from what I've read so far) places for bass near campus? Or is it fairly easy to get to other locations through public transportation with tackle and all?
