Lake Nockamixon, Quakertown
Well known for bass fishing and the occasional muskie, Lake Nockamixon is one of the top lakes in Bucks County for anglers looking to catch some trophy fish. This lake allows gas and electric powered boats. You can also rent a boat for the day from their marina.
Lake Galena, Doylestown
Lake Galena is a local favorite for anglers searching for smallmouth bass, blegill and catfish. This reservoir was created in 1974 when they built a dam on the North branch of the Neshaminy Creek and is part of Peace Valley Park. You can fish from shore or watercraft limited to electric and gas powered, but less than 10 horsepower engines.
Lake Luxembourg, Langhorne
Located in Core Creek Park, Lake Luxembourg is popular fishing destination in Lower Bucks County near Langhorne. This lake is stocked each year with trout from the Pennsylvania hatcheries and the season opens in early April. During the summer the water temps are too hot to support trout year round so get there before June to try your luck at rainbow trout. Otherwise it is a great spot for bass fishing, catfish and bluegills. Ice fishing is also popular here if the temps and ice conditions are right.
Van Sciver Lake, Levittown
Van Sciver Lake is one of the top lake sin Bucks County for bass fishing enthusiasts. The lake is stocked with bass, walleye, northern pike, pickerel, and striped bass and managed by the Penn Warrner fishing club. It is private access to members and guests only.
Churchville Park Reservoir
One of my personal favorites on the list because I grew up only a few miles from this lake. Loaded with nice size largemouth bass, perch and even walleye, you can only fish from the shore around this lake. My secret spot was accessing the lake from the dam area and working the water on under the tree overhangs along the banks.
