PLEASE NOTE: Pond fishing remains CLOSED until further notice.

The Route 322 road construction project deposited large amounts of silt in Concord Creek upstream from the Park. Between 2017 & 2019, this siltation moved downstream, stopping the operation of the 315-year-old Mill & halting the 60-year tradition of trout fishing in the ponds.

We are in the process of planning & permitting for the silt to be removed in 2023 so that we can reopen the Millrace & refill the Ponds. This is a massive & complex project — we thank you for your patience as we continue to work toward remediation.

E. Mortimer Newlin, founder of the Nicholas Newlin Foundation, was an enthusiastic fly fisherman who immediately recognized the possibilities of the trout stream – the West Branch of the Chester Creek – that runs through the property. Trout fishing has become a well-loved and enjoyable feature of the park.

Both pond and stream fishing are available starting on opening day of the Delaware County, Pennsylvania trout fishing season. Pond fishing remains open through October 31st, and stream fishing is open through December 31st (conditions permitting). See the links below for further information on times and restrictions.

**NOTE: The fishing ponds are closed, controlled waters and fall under State law with special privileges, such as no license, no limit, and no season. The stream, although protected water and privately stocked, is subject to all state regulations regarding public fishing. For this reason, it is necessary to keep the two operations completely separate.
