Damflask Fishery


Sheffield, South Yorkshire S6 6SQ, United Kingdom

Fishery Information

The Damflask reservoir was initially a part of a group of pools built to provide Sheffield with a constant supply of running water and clean drinking water.

The reservoir spans 116 acres and is home to a coarse and pike fishery. It is one of the largest premier fisheries in Yorkshire. It takes about 15 minutes to drive to the west of the city center of Sheffield from its location within the breathtaking Peak District National Park. Parking is available along the roadway, and visitors can reach the reservoir by bus.

The fishing area of the reservoir is open every day from dawn until an hour after sunset.  The fish are bream, chub, dace, perch, roach, and pike fishing. Restocking of the reservoir realised one hundred bream, some of which weighed more than 4 pounds each. Anglers can purchase day and monthly tickets from a vending machine near the dam.
