Two fishing opportunities exist within an easy walk of each other. Indian Run is a small, fast-moving, pristine, cold water resource inhabited by a naturally-reproducing Brown Trout population. Although many anglers head for the bigger, more popular East Branch of the Brandywine Creek, Indian Run can provide a challenging and enjoyable waterway. The stream averages only 10-15 feet in width, but produces good hatches of Mayfly, Stonefly and Caddis Fly species. The average depth is 12-18 inches. Legal-size fish reside in the stream, but most average below the minimum seven-inch state regulation. There is approximately one mile of public access to Indian Run.

Springton Manor Farm also has a small, half-acre farm pond with a depth of approximately 7 1/2 feet. Like many warm water ponds, its main fishery includes Bluegill and Largemouth Bass. It is a popular family fishing area, and a great place to introduce children to the sport. The pond is catch and release only.
