Anglers looking for smallmouth bass and bluegill are fond of Lake Galena. The reservoir was built in 1974 by Peace Valley Park. It is located on the North branch of the Neshaminy creek. Fishing from shore is possible, as well as watercraft powered by electric or gas engines with less than 10 horsepower.
Lake Luxembourg, Langhorne
Lake Luxembourg, located in Core Creek Park is a popular fishing spot in Lower Bucks County. It’s close to Langhorne. The season opens in April and this lake is stocked with trout from Pennsylvania hatcheries each year. The summer water temperatures are too high to support trout, so make sure you get there before June to have a chance at rainbow trout. It is also a popular spot for bluegills, catfish, and bass fishing. If the temperatures and ice conditions permit, ice fishing is possible here.
Van Sciver Lake in Levittown
Van Sciver Lake is a top Bucks County lake for bass fishermen. The Penn Warner fishing group manages the lake and stocks it with walleye, northern pike, and striped bass. Only members and their guests have access to the lake.
Churchville Park Reservoir
This lake is one of my personal favorites. I grew up just a few miles away from it. This lake is home to largemouth bass, perch, and even walleye. You can only fish the shoreline around it. My secret spot was to access the lake from the dam and work the water under the trees along the banks.
