Water Name

Lockwood Park

Description

Lockwood Park is a relatively small venue situated in Lockwood, on the outskirts of Huddersfield town centre. The mature dam is rectangular in shape, tree-lined with stone edging which provides stable pegs.

Although relatively shallow (depths to around 4') and fairly weedy in places, it does hold a decent head of mature carp, roach perch and a few pike.

Throughout the year the dam water is normally fairly clear, which can sometimes make the fishing a little harder but all usual tactics work, pole, feeder and waggler. Silver fish will normally respond to light lines and hook lengths with maggot scoring well, although sticklebacks can become a nuisance.

For a better stamp of fish revert to caster over hemp. For the carp (which can be a bit wily) stepped up tackle baited with paste, lobworm, luncheon meat and even Macdonald's fries have accounted for the undoing of these fish.

Weekdays in the colder months can be spent sometimes in solitude, but as the weather and water warms up it does become more popular. Weekends can be busy with children.

The most popular pegs are the ones nearest the entrance to the venue as the water is deeper.

Lockwood Park is now leased by S.& D.A.C so is no longer free
Day tickets can be purchased at Chris Roberts and The Bait Kitchen.
