Hi folks! I will be camping at Hickory Run state park this week and would like to get a sense where I could fish Sandy Spring Run and Hickory Run. Would also like to know if these waterways are close to the campground?

many thanks

Here is a detailed map of HRSP.

Both HR & SS are detailed on the map. Depending on exactly where you are camping, you should be very close to both of these streams.

I would also check out Mud Run in the far eastern corner of the map. The areas above and below Hawk falls are real nice places to hike and fish.

Have a great trip and post a report when you return

You'll soon want to head out further than those 2, and yes they are close to the campsites. As afishinado stated Mud Run is a good choice, check the map and investigate some of the other feeders to the Lehigh and the river itself.

I had the same idea you have and didn't make any definite plans but if you want to PM me your campsite # maybe we can hook up.

The CG's are in the Sand Spring drainage and at least one backs up to a lake with both stream access and access to one impoundment. That will get you started, the impoundments are all stocked.
I like Hickory Run above the road, it's nearly all brookies and some are of decent size. If you're there during the week just start above the impoundment just above the park office and fish on up, there is a couple of miles of good water and a good road to get you back. The fish for the most part aren't big, but some are legal size, keep in mind it's catch and release up to Saylorsburg Dam, that the one at the falls.

The object of a resource is to use and reuse a resource, not to use it up, have we learned nothing in over 125 years of stocking?

Hickory Run below 534 (park office) has been tough the last few years, but worth a try. Good trail all the way to the Lehigh. Farther on toward White Haven on 534, Hayes (Black) Creek is a pretty stream but also tough. Also good trail down to the Lehigh. There has been plenty of rain this summer so the levels and water temps have been very good.

There won't be any trout in Sandy Spring Run this time of year. It's stocked in the beginning of the year and get's fished out. Also gets warmer than Mud and Hickory.
