NR, Lots of people fish at the West Fairview access/launch area. There are parks here in East Penn. along the creek. What about over there where Willow Mill park used to be? I think that's a township park now.

Im sure a few other carp fishermen will chime in on this, but I always found that picking one or three spots where you spot carp now and then and investing a half can of house brand corn as chum for a few days will get you some private honeyholes. When youre ready, put three or four kernnels on a #8 baitholder 18 inches below a bb splitshot, or use an eighth to half ounce sinker above the splitshot in current, anchor the rod down, (carp LOVE swimming off with your favorite rod&reel), and wait.

Tastybread doughballs, cornmeal dough, and field corn (deer corn) boiled for two or so hours will work too.
You dont need a particular spot, just one that you chum for a few days to draw them into the area. The reason you pick a few is carp are really, really smart, and they WILL catch on fast.

Good luck NR

We use can and cooked field corn for bait. My son has a sling shot with a big pocket to lob the field corn out from shore.

Just an FYI: A few weeks ago my son and I were fishing a long shore line for bass. There were intermittent big trees. Under every big tree were 2 to 8 carp. I could not tell you what kind of trees they were but they seemed to be attracted go them. Unfortunately we cannot not fish from that particular shore line.
