Barlow Fishery - Open all year for trout, carp and coarse day tickets
Barlow Trout and Coarse Fishery is set in 50 acres of beautiful secluded valley on
the edge of the Derbyshire Peak District and quite close to the South Yorkshire border.
Comprising of three trout lakes, four coarse lakes, a carp lake, a fresh water brook,
holiday cottages and a camping club site, the fishery is situated only four miles
from Chesterfield and ten miles from Sheffield city centre. Day tickets are available
for fly fishing from £15 per day and a full day on the coarse lakes will cost £5.
Carp fishing costs £10 for two rods and overnight fishing is permitted at a cost
of £10. Usually, the trout lakes are re-stocked on a weekly basis from our own hatchery
and the fish are normally introduced at between 1.5 and 2 lbs.
Facilities include ample car parking and toilets Fly fishing tuition can be arranged
and general advice is always freely available.
Due to our hard standing paths and roads, the fishery remains practically mud free,
even after the heaviest rain. Disabled anglers will find flat and easy access to
the coarse lakes.
Barlow lakes are open all year from dawn to dusk.
