Water Name

Harthill Fisheries, Harthill, Sheffield


In all there are 3 waters to be tackled here, but all come under the name as listed above. The site covers over 20 acres, and offers something for all anglers, throughout all the seasons. Not all areas are suitable for anglers with disabilities, but there are plenty of pegs adjacent to the parking areas that would be OK. Some of the remaining banks feature a slope, so not the easiest to get your box level without the octoplus legs.

If you follow the directions given below the first lake that you will come to is the largest of the three - the boating lake. This lake has the dam wall at its deepest end with depths approaching 20 ft in this area. The marginal areas drop away quickly to depths of between 5ft and 7ft.

The next water along is the Middle lake, which is interlinked to both the boating lake and the Top Lake.

This water ranges in depth between 6 ft at the Boating Lake end and 4 foot towards the Top Lake. There are deeper areas to 8 ft in the middle of this water.

The top lake is the smallest of the three, at about 3 acres. It has a square shape and averages 4 ft throughout.

Both of the larger lakes are similarly stocked. The largest fish are the carp, which do run to 30lb +. There is also a good stock of pastie sized fish. There is a very healthy stock of carp, often chased by quite a good syndicate of anglers. There are some very good bream present with the bigger fish up 7lb 4oz, there are plenty of skimmers present that do provide good sport to worm and maggot. Tench are present, best fish a little over 5lb. Perch to 4 1/4lb, with roach to 1½lb.

The top lake also has carp to 30lb, but also pike to 25lb. Bream go 3lb, a few larger perch to 2lb, roach to a 1lb, with the very odd occasional tench to 4lb.

Maggot will get you a bite a chuck all day if that is what you fancy. Boilies do take the bigger carp, whilst the smaller ones can be taken successfully on meat, pellets and corn. The water can run very clear at times of the year, but a cloudy groundbait will help.
