were in philly are you exactly. In philadelphia there really isnt to much fishing. You could go to the Delaware river or the Schuylkill river. If you want to do stream, pond fishing you'll most likely have to drive a little outside the city.

I think Wissahickon park might be worthwhile. Near Philly but closer to Ambler, I think. (don't get me to lyin', too many damn little townships up there shoved in tight together.)

There's a creek running through a park in Horsham as well that always caught my eye. Looked like casting would be quite tough though.

I believe the OPs trip date has passed, but the one thing to note is that most waters in PA are closed to all fishing this month. The exceptions are the few special regulation waters which are currently "catch & release" mode (i.e "delayed harvest artificial lures only", "fly fishing only catch & release", "artificial lures catch & release", etc.)

thanks all for sending me the info, while there i was in broomall though, my dad took me to see a place where people had fished (he was gonna take me to a sportgood store and just buy a cheap spinning (i didn't bring my fly rod cause i couldn't find a place) rod if the place was any good), but when we got there it was closed off with fences and no trustpassing signs!

but thank you all for sending me information, i believe i'm going during the summer, and i'm gonna find somewhere to go for sure!
