That sounds pretty incredible. I like trout fishing in the fall, and plan on going this weekend (since the stripers arent thick yet). I normally fish scotts run, any reports?

Great report. The streams are in fine condition too, which make for a great fall interlude until the striped ones blitz. That's interesting that they put breeders in the first week. They must have a heck of a stock in store.

went again today with the same results 22 fish in 2 hours. If you are a fly fisherman this is the place to be I watched a guy slinging a dry fly and he must have caught 70 fish!

I only caught about ten browns up to 14 inches today at scotts run. They only took shiners, no lures. I'll have to try levittown.

Went again on Saturday morning . got there around 5Am to beat the crouds . put my hip boots on and headed down the trail . when i reached the lake i could not beleive my eyes hundreds and hundreds of browns 2' from the shore line. Caught 30 on minnow before heading to my spot before the crowd arived.At first light started to throw a castmaster and had a fish on just about every cast.when the sun came up they stopped hitting lures and I switched to meal worm- again every cast had a fish on .Stopped counting at 50.Probably had close to 80 fish. btwn my crew of 3 guys I would guess we landed about 220 brown and 1 rainbow.

Levittown lake is off of Rt.13 "Bristol pike" in Bristol twp Pa. It's just north of the Burlington bristol bridge on the west side of the pike.

Nice. I hit the Wissahickon yesterday. 3 little 10" browns in 4 hours, 5 carp, all on worms. Sunfish were the only thing hitting spinners.

Now that you have tormented me I guess I have to check out Levittown.


Hoping to get out there in next few days. How well does that little lake hold up after rain? Does not appear to have any creeks leading in. Can I fish it Friday if it rains hard tonight?
