Nockamixon or any stocked areas near Philly ? Help

I have a 18 month old Spinone that I would like to get out to work Nockamixon ( or any other close stocked areas) for some Pheasants. I am new to the area ( Philly ) and looking for good info on good places to start looking for stocked birds.
Shes has proven herself In Maine and I would be happy to meet up and run her for anyone interested in getting out on week days as well.
The Spin is a semi close range , steady moving long hard worker .

The Nock is the only place left in Bucks County that is still stocked. My Father and Brother were their on Saturday and said it was a mad house. FYI be careful it's extra packed. You may want to try other locations. Just look on the PGC site for all the stocked locations.

I live 5 min. from the Nock and hardly ever hunt it, nice grounds and cover but just simply too many people. Travel farther to some of the bigger areas and it will be worth the trip.

My 2 cents, if you can swing it is go to a preserve, avoid the agravation of SGL, and have a nice hunt. I'd rather have one good hunt than 10 bad ones. Even better, get a membership at a preserve that will let you scratch hunt for free.

With so few areas stocked now its not looking like its going to be much fun anymore. Beltzville, Fench Creek, Nockamixon, and SGL 243 are going to get hammered by everyone from the local area and from the south and east.

You can always try Evansburg State Park in Skippack. That is also stocked.
I sent you a p.m.

Pretty sure Evansburg is off the list. SGL 243 is the only stocked area listed for Montgomery County.

Very interesting, someone told me they shot pheasants there last year and I thought they were [censored]'ing me.
