The Deal: Philadelphia's Schuylkill River, by and large, is much more managable for an angler on foot. It's smaller than Pittsburgh's three rivers, which makes it easier to read prime water and find access. The crew from Pittsburgh in this episode usually fish the Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio Rivers on foot as well, however, for rookies dealing with such large bodies of water, finding sweet spots can take time and patience....good bank spots mus be earned. Catfishermen with boats that have good sonar will make quicker work of scouting for Steel City's notorious industrial river debris that the flathead love. The Schuylkill—a.k.a. "Skuke"—on the other hand, features a lot more classic flathead structure, such as rocky holes, dead falls, and small eddies.
