Angling is available to the public at Poolsbrook Country Park, Holmebrook Valley Park, Ringwood Lake and McGregor's Pond.
The council's angling lakes are well-stocked with a vaiety of coarse fish, including carp, roach and bream. The councils lease the angling rights on the lakes to individual clubs who administer membership matters and the sale of day tickets.
Day tickets may be purchased from angling club bailiffs at Holmebrook Valley Park, Ringwood Park and McGregor's Pond. Day tickets for Poolsbrook Country Park are available from Cliff Madden Angling Supplies on Chesterfield Road, Staveley.
Details of club membership may be obtained from bailiffs and notice boards on site.
