Urban Fishing

Campers at TPS Fishing Camp (grades 4-8) had a busy day! We caught 31 fish this morning along the Schuylkill River, including an 18-inch catfish and a 14-inch striped bass! Later in the day, we dissected a variety of fish -- sea robin, lamprey, menhaden, sting ray, dogfish, and catfish. (These were special dissection fish ordered from a science company; all the fish we caught were thrown back.) Everyone did an excellent job, and it was fascinating to see the similarities and differences among the fish.
