Consider the Allegheny upstream of Pittsburgh. It's probably the best muskie and walleye river in the state and isn't too bad for smallmouth (Of course, Tom's results would make one argue for the Susquehanna). No stripers, though. Lots of good lakes in the region, too.
Of course, the Delaware has all of your choices, but not really all in the same place and not within an hour of Philly. You have the whole middle section if you consider Allentown a city. It has the clear water most of the time too.

Regarding your post in "Susquehanna"- what's wrong with raising your son in South Jersey? It sounds like the perfect place to raise your family. Philly is within 1 hour and New York City and Baltimore are within 2. I can appreciate wanting to stay near big fish but they do live around here. Get your stripers in the surf, the river, or the creeks (all within 1 hour) and, as for your muskies, this board is proof that there are a number of spots in the area that hold fish. Also, the notes from the Fish Forum show that the State is working hard to put new waters on the list and to improve the fishery both in terms of quality and quantity.
Good luck in your search.
