Re: coming up on the 1 year anniversary....
I want you to "Mapquest" Easton, PA... there are four (4) Class A trout streams within the Easton-Bethlehem area;
-1) Bushkill Creek (runs from Jacobsburg State Park to Easton)
-2) Saucon Creek (literally minutes off the Hellertown exit off I-78)
-3) Monocacy Creek (runs from Bath down through Bethlehem)
-4) Martins Creek (runs from Bangor down to Martins Creek)
Depending on your exact starting point (Philly is a big area), this hot bed of streams is about 1:15 to 1:30 away. Make no mistake about it, these streams hold tons of fish - wild and stocked - and some (especially the Bushkill) hold some very large wild browns.
If you feel they're easily within your reach I can give you the lowdown on each. If I had to rank them in order of personal favorites it would be; Martins, Bushkill, Monocacy, Saucons... all have strong sulphur hatches (which should be cranking up big time).
