Anyone know the regulations for this stream? I read in a book that it is mainly a private stream. Anyone know if this is true?

I like the name.

I did some searching on the Internets using the Google. And I found it mentioned on this DCNR page.

When I saw this thread title, I thought it was about the Steelers last couple games.

Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace-- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun!... Our brethren are already in the field! It is in vain... to extenuate the matter...but as for me, Give Me Liberty or give me death.

I believe it would have the same regs as the fly stretch of Ridley Creek catch and release fly fishing only..

No, they’ve wandered up an unnamed creek, without a paddle.

It is not on any list except as a boundary for the C&RFFO area of Ridley Creek. That puts it under general regulations. Access is a different issue. Where Private - Open or public land it would fall under general regulations and where Private - Closed it would be at the discretion of the landowner or lessee.

The beauty of C&R fly fishing is that you can fish just about anywhere year round without worrying about regulations. (except for for during the closed season on Approved Trout Streams from March 1 thru Opening Day)

Don't hit me with them negative waves so early in the morning. Think the bridge will be there and it will be there. It's a mother, beautiful bridge, and it's gonna be there. Ok?

Looking at the map, the lower end of the creek is in Ridley Creek S.P. from the mouth up to the first bridge, just a short distance. Then above that its in private land for a short distance. Then above that it runs through Tyler Arboretum for well over a mile. You'd have to check with the arboretum to see if fishing is allowed.
Are there trout in Dismal Run?

That is perhaps the best name for a stream I've ever heard.
I've got to go there just to say, "When it comes to fishing, I've had a Dismal Run."
