sweet.. might try there this weekend.. where you down by the house?
the colonial plantation? best fishing is about halfway between there and the FFO section. Walk straight past the trailside pools and fish the runs.

I think the plantation is the upstream limit of the states stocking. Park at the waterfall in the FFO section and walk the trail upstream to where the creek loses the trail. there are plenty of trail to follow from the plantation too, but you will be lucky if you see a butch chick on horseback. Walking from the FFO there will be plenty of eye candy.

From 476 take the Media/Swarthmore exit and follow route 1 (baltimore pike) through Media. At the end of the town you will go down a hill with a concrete barricade in between the lanes and take your next right onto Ridley Creek Road (if you cross the creek you went too far).

Follow this road to its end and take a left. Follow this road until you come to a stop sign with a painted wall in front of you. You will be right in the FFO section at the start of the trail. Parking to the left of right and lots of it but it fills up with fisherman and joggers.

Probably 10 minutes from the blue route.

I agree with RyanF the plantation may be a little far upsteam for the state stockings. They use to stock all the way up past there, but I don't think they hit that area any more.

I was jogging in the park Wednesday evening and was surprised to see as many fishermen as I did. I was aslo surprised to see two palominos swimming around in there. Actually I saw the one hooked on opening day. The guy had it up on the bank when he dropped it. The line broke the he and the fish rolled back into the creek. It was great entertainment for all who saw and there were many. If you see a palomino with a spinner still in its mouth that would be the one.:D

The state dosnt stock above the colonial plantation anymore. they go in at the far corner of the parking lot and put in some buckes there. From there they move on to the falls (bike trail) and they work thier way all the way up stream just past the handycap pier. ;)

Yeah, but if you hit Y100 and the mall you went too far. Ridley Creek Road is just before you cross the creek on your right coming out of Media around the bend.

went out this morning to the hole i usually got to, and all i got was one rainbow. Plenty of fish ther, but they just werent hittin. The one i got was on the green with glitter power bait. I had one other hit on a yellow rooster tail. When he hit, no lie he came about 3 feet out of the water, and then he was never to be seen again. At least i got out.
