Fishing at Nottingham County Park

In this rural, southern Chester County park, fishing opportunities are limited to two warm water bodies of water - a small pond and the larger McPherson Lake. These fishing areas are located on opposite sides of the park. Parking is available for both sites and provides easy access to the shoreline.

In the one-acre pond on the park’s east side, an angler may hook Bluegill, Largemouth Bass, Channel Catfish and Brown Bullhead.

The 2.5-acre McPherson Lake has Bluegill and Largemouth Bass, and is catch and release only.
