Has anyone fished Raccoon Creek for stripers in the early season? I remember my brother-in-law telling me it was good fishing but I?ve never tried it. Is there a place to park and fish from shore?

Scott, boat fishing for the most part. I used to fish near the rte 130 bridge in late summer/fall for smallish stripers on topwater action. Shore access near the big river is very limited though.

There's nowhere to fish from shore Scott. There is a public boat yard and you can fish in the mouth of the creek or out in the river most days with your boat. Come off the CB brindge 130 south make the first right before the creek and follow down to "Bridgeport Boat Yard". $10 ramp fee and you're in.

Is it worth it to trailer and launch the boat in that area in the first week of March or should I look elsewhere? Thanks.

I agree with Harry Scott. Especially since it finally decided to get cold here recently.

We used to fish it before the word got out. I have seen 3 fish 50+ pounds caught there. When you hit it right it can be non stop action on all good size fish. We haven't fished there in about 10 years.

Asking for a friend -- is the gate to the ramp down in Ridley for Delaware river access locked? When would it open? And is the dock down in Chester near the Comm. Barry bridge in the water yet? Looking for March access to the Delaware River --- Thanks.

Thanks for the responses guys. I'm not sure when I'll get out, though. I was thinking about playing hookey from work one day and giving it a try.
