Best Bass Waters
Pennsylvania
State record: 11 pounds 3 ounces, Donald Shade, 1983, Birch Run Reservoir
Best water: Lake Arthur. “It’s a reservoir within the glaciated portion of Pennsylvania and tends to be very productive. It’s within our big bass special regulations program, including a minimum size of 15 inches. It has good forage, and bass grow very well.”—Bob Lorantas, warmwater unit leader, Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission

Sleeper: Delaware Estuary, Philadelphia. “It’s in the shadow of Philadelphia and not typically a destination for anglers getting away from it all, but the improvement in water quality in the estuary has been great.”
