Barlow Fishery

Barlow Fishery

Dronfield, Derbyshire

Great access and good pegs, not a mud fest in the wet!

Barlow Trout and Coarse Fishery is set in 50 acres of beautiful countryside on the edge of the Derbyshire Peak District and the South Yorkshire border.

The four coarse lakes contain a variety of fish, including a large head of specimen/large carp – one lake is more focussed around carp fishing, look for the pods and tents, you should be able to work out which one. The venues stock levels are closely monitored, with re-stocking taking place on a regular basis. Many of the fish, including carp have actually been bred at the venue, so they are good quality fish that have been well looked after.

If you don’t like walking too far with your fishing tackle then this place will be great for you, there is close parking near most pegs. The hard standing paths and roads ensure that the fishery remains practically mud free, even after the heaviest rain, which makes it an ideal place for anyone in a wheelchair.
