About our Fishery

Damflask is one of Yorkshire's largest premier fisheries, a 116 acre reservoir which boasts a coarse and pike fishery. Situated within the stunning Peak District National Park it is 15 minute drive to the west of Sheffield city centre.

The reservoir can be fished for bream, chub, dace, perch, pike and roach and is open all year round. In recent years we have restocked the reservoir with over 100 bream, some weighing more than 4lbs each. At a match held at the reservoir in 2005, an individual record of 70lbs was set by one angler!
