Depends on bait river temps and salinity of waters up river. The last being the most deciding factor they have been reported as far up river as New York even but this was taken from pa fish commission biologist :

Although salinity thresholds for striped bass spawning tend to vary among systems, they typically spawn where salinities are less than 5 ppt. Highly successful spawning has been observed in the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal at salinities of 0.70 to 1.50 ppt. The lack of precipitation in the winter and early spring of 2012 allowed the salt line to advance upstream further than usual during the spring spawning period (April and May). Consequently, this may have concentrated spawning striped bass further upstream than usual and increased catch rates in Pennsylvania.

You are the man mu fish. I love the information you provide. Anyway, my brother is coming up from south Carolina this weekend so I can show him some real bass in the form of a striper. Any thoughts on what part of the river would be best. We should be on the water from noon till sunset, thanks, chuckles oh and of course I will be on channel 17.

Welcome to the site as far as from land u have a lot of options some that are more popular than others: fishing from land I would say u can pull up and fish anywhere u feel fit. The more popular spots are station ave, linden ave, Frankford arsenal, fishing pier at Tacony bridge, train bridge by Betsy Ross bridge, behind the airport/ups building. I'm sure there are plenty other places to fish the pa side of the river.
Again welcome to the site and keep us posted on your outings good or bad. Catch'em up

Just a update: herring and shad are still moving up river, streams, creeks. Saw waves of herring today coming up the rapids 20-30 at a time for 2 hours straight and the up by the falls its already loaded with big gizzard shad, hickory shad, I saw couple big American shad and tons of blue back herring (river herring)
Watched a hawk dive down on 3 herring while I was there caught a pic but was about 70 yards away not a clear pic but it was cool to watch.
Well wont be on the river til Sunday heading to SIC to fish the beaches for 24 hours straight wit my boy Saltlife from the barn.
Catch'em up guys the full moon has come and within next 2 days its gone turn on fire I'm sure!
