Musky fishing opportunities in the Bethlehem area

I just moved from southern VA and am trying to figure out where I can go. I learned my lessons the hard way about how detrimental "advertising" lakes, rivers, and certain spots can be to a fishery, especially for the meat hunters out there who don't respect or understand just how fragile a musky fishery can be. Consequently, I'm not looking for someone to gift wrap information for me.

I've done some reading up on a number of areas to try, but the Lehigh River has been mentioned on this board so I don't feel as guilty about bringing it up, plus it's closest for me. I guess all I'm asking is if the population density is enough to warrant the time on the water. I can put in the time to learn the spots, so again I'm not trying to steal info, just seeing if there is a "fishable" population.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Definitely a fishable population.

Not the best water for a boat, especially if you do not have a jet. But it has some real nice fish.

Lots of good info on the lehigh river on the PA fish and boat commission website, do a little digging and you can find some good areas to get started.
