Mud Run is a delayed harvest, artificial lure only stream.

The lower 2.9 miles of Hickory Run, from near the Saylorsville Dam to the Lehigh River, is a catch and release fishing only area.

This activity or structure is ADA accessible. A fishing pier for people with disabilities is on the CCC Pond, near the campground.

Fishing is discouraged in Sand Spring Lake and is prohibited in the swimming area.

Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission laws and regulations apply.
