Calfheath Reservoir

Brief description of fishery:

  • Size – 19 Acres
  • Depths 6ft – 14ft
  • Bottom – Gravel/Sand, Some Silt
  • Weed – Margins Only

Calf Heath is a mature picturesque reservoir which was constructed in the 1700’s, it’s around 19 acres in size and possibly the jewel in the Blackfords crown. There are 80 well constructed pegs providing a secure platform from which to fish. The reservoir is well known for its huge stocks of quality Bream backed up with a good head of Roach with some Tench and Perch. Carp stocks are also considerable with around a 1,000 fish in the low double range rising up to 20lb. Calf Heath is also a great match venue with events running each month, with regular weights of 50-60lb+ of silver fish being produced. If you’re simply looking to put a bend in rod then Calf Heath will take some beating. The reservoir can be located from the A5 on the west side of Cannock near J12 of the M6 – Gailey Island.
