Underbank Reservoir

Manchester Road, Stocksbridge, S36 1, Sheffield, United Kingdom

Underbank Reservoir is one of the many reservoirs in and around the Sheffield area. The water can provide all year round sport with very good catches of Pike up to the mid-twenties coming out from dead baits during the colder winter months. The pike fishing is controlled under syndication and there is quite a waiting list due to the quality of the fishing. Those fishing for pike must have the following as an absolute minimum, 15lb line, 20lb traces, unhooking mats, forceps and adequate landing nets. Piking is allowed from October to the end of February.
If you are after the Bream then get a big ground bait feeder fished out into the wind, the earlier in the day the better. Worm and corn on the hook tend to catch best with the average fish being between 3 and 4lb but bigger fish up to 5½lb coming out regularly.
If you wish to target the silver fish then a Waggler or Pole approach will see Perch up to 1lb and Roach at a little over ½lb coming out all day. A good days fishing will see you take anywhere between 30-50lb of fish.

Perch up to 1lb

Normal questions, Can you night fish, how much for a day or 24 hour ticket, is it necessary to join the syndicate, what's the waiting list and how much does it cost, and how do I do it. Fairly new to the area and looking for some good pike waters. many thanks in advance

Good evening, i'm just querying whether or not angling for pike on Underbank reservoir is still controlled by a syndicate or not. I am local to the area and have heard numerous reports that the water is now fish-able by day ticket. I look forward to your reply, kind regards simon
