Newbiggin pond is one of the waters run by Chapeltown & District AA. It is one of the oldest clubs in Sheffield and the first angling club in South Yorkshire to get the highly accredited clubmark status, it also has four qualified coaches and runs coaching sessions for Children throughout the year.
The pond has twelve easily accessible pegs all on the level and all are well maintained, there is only a short flat walk from the car park so it is ideal for the less agile angler. The pond is also a nature reserve and you can expect to see a varied selection of animals around the place.
The pond is well stocked with good size and quality fish with Carp up to 15lb, Bream up to 5lb, Tench also up to 5lb, Chub up to 4lb, Crucians to about 2lb, Ide between 2.5 & 4lb and a good selection of Roach and Perch to about 1.5lb.
Most methods will catch you fish with maggot and Pellet being the favoured baits with the regulars. The pond is about six or seven feet deep in the middle but will produce fish in the margins at either side which are about 2 to 3ft. You may only fish from one side as the other is the nature reserve but you have 30/40yds of water in front of you.
Although this pond is situated near a major by-pass it has a very peaceful and secluded feel about it with plenty of bird and pond life in evidence. This pond is a very popular venue so get there early if you go at the weekend.
