striperjim,
Did you take that picture of the TP Bridge? When was it taken, b/c it looks like the old fishing club ramp next to the edgly yacht club was still usable at the time of the picture or is that the yacht club ramp?

I was just curious since I grew up about 50 yards upriver from there.

Thanks for the welcome

Matt

Hey RiverGrub!

I fish in Morrisville all the time. Do you shore fish or boat?

drdaley,
I mainly fish from boat, but I will fish the banks here and there. Don't fish the tidal river as much as upriver anywhere from scudders falls to up above Upper Black eddy. I'm going to try to get out to the bridges this week though.

Thanks for the information Jim...Good above the bridge all year round! I just want photos anyways. Just don't want a fine for my troubles.

Depending on weather and water conditions, I might try to get out for my first trip this Sunday.

Striperjim,

What is an appreciable brackish water species? I remember seeing an old newspaper clipping of a shark caught in Darby Creek. In years where there is little rain the salt line can move as far north as Philadelphia. Blue crabs are caught in Delaware County. I have seen flounder caught in Delaware just below the state line.
What else? How about whales and dolphins.

I find that less remarkable then the walleyes in the Delaware River in Delaware County.

Jerkbait I believe what the Pa DFG are referring to are species that are born in the brackish water estuaries, not transient saltwater fish that venture upriver.
