Saucon Creek runs right under I78 near Hellertown as well.

Even the upper (big) Lehigh River north of the gap at Blue Mountain... I have caught many trout, BIG trout fishing just upstream of the Turnpike bridge (Parryville area, park on the north side, close to where the Pohopoco empties in by the diner, walk upstream past the Rock Hill Cement property, and cross the river to the island from there)...

OK, don't laugh... here's a "quickie" map from PowerPoint ;-)

Caught a 19" brown about 4 years ago (late May) standing right about at the end of that wading path arrow, casting to the chute riffle on the south side of the island... #16 Rusty Spinner.

Thanks, i'll have to give it a go this year. My biggest inhibition to fishing in PA is finding the access points to new water...
