I am a couple of minutes drive away from the reservoirs at Debdale Park in Gorton close to Manchester and was wondering if anybody has any information they could give me as to the top spots for fishing and best rigs/baits etc. I have heard the two seperate reservoirs hold big carp, pike, bream and roach to name a few. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I see this thread what started few years ago however; I thought I should reply anyway just in case anyone else reads it.

I live only few minutes from the lake myself and have fished here many off times during my younger days. At present the park is being cleaned up and water has been drained off about half way. I am under the assumption it will all return to normal next summer.

The lake has a good selection of fish and should provide an excellent fishing venue once all the work has been done.

If you are reading this and are from Manchester then I would love to hear from you. I am looking for Manchester anglers to help me carry out some market research on this magnificent sport. The information gathered will help me start off few projects to help me improve the sport in the area…

All you have to do is answer few very simple questions. For further details please email me at info@anytackle.co.uk and I will reply with the questions. No names, address or anything like that…

Until about six months ago I lived in Gorton manchester. I came across Debdale park by accident and was even more delighted to find out that fishing was free. Although it says a charge applies on websites but there is noone to collect anything. I have asked myself from the managing office for fishing tickets but was told there was no need to buy one as the reservoirs did not contain much water.

I remember a few blokes fishing here. Out of the three times I fished here, on one occasion I caught two small jack-pikes using spinners. They were only small, but when no one is landing fish and you land two its an achievement.

There was another fellow watching me fish and when he saw me landing two, he called up his family on his mobile and within half an hour I was surrounded by little kids with their mommies either throwing stones into the water or dipping themselves in. two of his sons had fishing rods too. Hence I decided to call it a day but it was one of the good fishing days I have had.

The way to tackle it is with a basball bat in either hand and half a dozen pitbulls by your side. They just might leave you in peace then!

Agree with Phil.

6 or 7 years ago I used to float fish in the margins in the evening on the lower lake, for nice Tench up to 5lb. Then some 'hard' kid thought it was amusing, along with his crowd of equally hard mates, to set his Pit Bull on me, only to call it off at the last moment.

The venue holds some nice fish, butwith the hassles you get there, it's just not worth it.

The upper reservoir is a little quieter but I personally won't risk it.

By the way the big Roach used to be caught nearly 30 years ago, haven't seen any recently.

a good pike and roach water, a few decent carp in the bottom one, we took them to 19lb when we fished it as a group in the 70s, last time I was up there was in the 90s with ron clay, my lad took a few small pike on lures, tales of catfish in the bottom one once but I`ve never seen a picture of one, but Phils quite right about the social problems the waters have, you need to go tooled up

fished debdale for years now but mainly for pike and perch when i was younger up until acouple ofyear back when i started doing quite a bit of time on there carp fishing and was rewarded with a number of fish throughout my time on there never had any hassle at all and have done sessions on there for 2 to 3 consecutive nights. the carp i have had have ranged from 10 or 11 lb up to 22lb and had a couple of scraper 20 s but in my eyes definatly worth the time on there and the effort because alot of the carp in there are hardly ever caught some of which may not of been. there are rumours of a couple of fish over 30lb been in there and truthfully i dont see why there can t be.
