On the outskirts of Reading, PA, Lake Ontelaunee is a 1,100-acre reservoir with unique fishing opportunities. While the lake has healthy populations of bass, crappie, catfish, sunfish and perch, boats are not allowed on the lake. So this is a great place to test your fishing skills while fishing from shore.
