1GUNNER French Creek Park is not too far from you. All the info for Pa. state parks can be found on the internet. They have a nice lake with a launch. It's much easier fishing from a small boat or canoe than from shore. The lake has bass, perch,pickerl,pike,crappies and other panfish. There is also Scotts Run lake a few minutes from the main lake which is stocked with trout for the different seasons and a launch there also. There are also private campgrounds in the area too. The poconos are a little further but plenty of camping and fishing there also and great scenery. Used to go to Promised Land State Park every year some years ago what a great place. They always have bear sightings there. Besides fishing and camping in common our dob is same year but I'm six mos younger lol. Enjoy wherever you go.

small mouth bass

look up riverfront campgrounds.com for a great small mouth fishing trip. Its where the susquehanna & juanata rivers come together. they take you up 4 or 6 miles.put you in, you float down to the camp. Its awsome!

Shamoo...when was the last time you were at Riverfront? I am thinking about going in late Sept. I was there a number of years ago and it was great. I wonder how they're biting.

venator, if you want a really good camping trip take a hike up north to a place called Swartzwood Lake, loaded with LMB,SMB,walleye,pickeral,rock bass, crappie,sunnies and trout. Its a glacier lake.
