I've been fishing here for almost 30 years, (100% Facts) there are some record Shattering size fish here! I was almost pulled over the dam once before fishing with a live bullfrog probably about 9 in in length. with a heavy weight (don't judge me) But I firmly believe I hooked a giant catfish that did nothing but go straight to extremely deep water then proceeded to spool me! I was using 20lb mono I also lost my father to Hoppes and this place will always be apart of me for the rest of my life. No matter the restrictions or consequences!

Edwards Run is a channel leading off the Delaware River. The species I know of in here are catfish, perch, bass, and occasionally yellow perch, eel, and striper. If you want to bass fish here, fish places where there’s cover, or edges of the lilies. Catfish and perch are most likely to be caught here if you use worms. Overall, Edwards Run is a pretty good place to fish.
