carp fishing in france

Catch Reports


1st - 8th September

We arrived at the lake a little after 2pm, after a pleasant drive down through france, from the port of Calais. On arrival, we were well pleased with our choice of venue. We found the host's Fred and Danny very approachable, friendly and knowledgeable and after a few beers and a chat we were soon set-up and carp fishing. The first night of our carp fishing holiday in france passed by without any action which was a blessing really as we all needed a good nights sleep, Sunday produced 5 fish between the 3 of us with the biggest going just over 23lb. Monday and Tuesday passed by with very little action, only another 5 fish between us, the best being a 22lb common. Much better was to come as Wednesday the weather improved greatly and the fish really got their heads down and started to respond to the 15 kilo of Cell we had put in. Between Wednesday and Saturday morning we had a total of 28 fish between the 3 of us. The best fish of the week were 45lb.05oz, 41lb, 38lb.09oz, 36lb.05oz, 33lb.02oz, 30lb.12oz along with 9 good 20's. After a slow start we can only say that thing's just got better and better so much so that we would have loved to stayed on for another week but we had to make way for the next party and wished them well on our way out the gate.

That's for all the advice and well be seeing you again shortly....Rob, Will and Kev from Doncaster

8th - 15th September

Had a superb week like the previous party before us who we had met on our arrival at the lake, we were using the same bait Cell and put in 20k between the 2 of us along with about the same amount of haibut pellets. In total for the week I caught 15 fish and brother Mike just piped me at the post with 16. The biggest fish of the week was a monster 45lb catfish followed closely by a mint conditioned 54lb.07oz Mirror carp, my brother Mike being the lucky capture another six 20's and five 30's made for a superb week's fishing. The caravan and facilities at this Lake are a much added bonus and we found the Host, Fred and Danny, really helpful. This lake comes highly recommended and we can't wait to get back on next year.

Thanks for everything and see you next year....Albert and Mike Steadman - Leeds.

15th - 22nd September

Great lake, superb surroundings and excellent facilities. We had an exceptional week's fishing with the both of us breaking our personal best 3 times each!!. Terry had 14 carp, 4 * 20's to 28lb.10oz, 3 * 30's to 38lb.11oz with his best fish of the week being a mint 45lb.07oz mirror and a new personal best for him. I caught 16 fish in total for the week "Swim 1" 5 * 20's to 26lb, 2 * 30's to 39lb.08oz and a stonking big mirror of 48lb.02oz which is now my own personal best. In addition to the carp I was fortunate enough to catch 3 cats which went, 22lb, 36lb and 43lb. All in all a fantastic week's fishing and were coming back for sure.

Thanks for a memorable week....Terry & Mick Stevens - Crawley in Sussex.

22nd - 29th September

First time in France for us and although we got lost on the way down " The Wife's fault" map reading never been a strong point. On arrival at the lake we were met by Fred & Peter and after a few tips and last week's catch report we were soon setup and fishing. Found many places of interest to visit, the Zoo being well worth a visit. Simon my son, who did most of the fishing, had 6 catfish, biggest going just under 40lb along with 3 other 30's and 15 carp to 36lb.10oz so he was well pleased. Another 12 fish between my wife and I with 2 over 30lb made for a terrific weeks fishing. The lake and facilities are first class, no problems bringing the wife and children. Could not recommend this lake highly enough look forward to meeting you both again next year.

All the best Nathan, Karen and Simon - Surrey
