Harthill Reservoir

Harthill is a series of three ponds covering 33 acres. It's the main supply and water reserve for the local Chesterfield Canal, and also home to Rotherham Sailing Club.

Boasting a large stock of carp, bream, roach and pike, this is a water that if you can find them, you can expect to catch fish every cast.

Classed by some as a carp runs water, it's not unheard of to catch more than 30 fish in a session. Carp average 8lb and some run close to 30lb.

Bream also play a dominant role in the numbers of fish present and this makes the reservoir popular with general coarse and match orientated anglers.

Fishery rules
