MANAGEMENT of Harthill Reservoir near Sheffield has been put out to tender by the Canal & River Trust with a deadline of 12 p.m. on Monday, December 4.
The upper reservoir is mainly used for specimen carp fishing but also has some specimen tench, bream, pike and roach. The main reservoir is currently undergoing engineering works and the drained sections are to be stocked with match-sized carp early in 2024 once the reservoir is refilled. Overall it covers more than 33 acres.
CRT national fisheries and angling manager John Ellis said: “The upper Harthill Reservoir is a beautiful fishery and it’s not unheard of to catch more than 30 fish in a session, with carp averaging 8lb and some running close to 30lb.
“We are confident that, following the restocking with the Fishers Pond strain of carp, the Harthill Reservoir fishery will prove extremely popular for club and open matches.”
