Barlow Fishery - Open all year for trout, carp and coarse day tickets
Barlow Trout and Coarse and carp 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
Comprising of three trout lakes, four coarse lakes, a specialist 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.
