You need a small boat though to zip around, the access is very limited by shore. You would have to really study up on them in this particular river and target them.
I've heard similar comments on the Concord river. But I've never given it a try due to the access question. Does the marina in Concord rent boats?
Another location is the Charles river near the Waltham/Weston line. I have seen, and suffered "Buck Fever" trying to catch, pickerel in this area that are over 30".
