Fishing for Rock Bass on the Delaware River

Rock Bass

Rock bass are those red eyed fish found schooling around structure. In the sunfish family, this small species are a royal pain in the ass for smallmouth fisherman. On the other hand, when nothing else is biting, they can help break up a boring day. They are found in the cleaner parts of the upper river. There are few in the lower sections: Yardley, New Hope, Bulls Island but around Delaware Water Gap they are abundant. Usually found around a tree limb or some logs, these fish are taken on any type of small lure.
