lake sunrise Two top class French Carp fishing lakes covering 6 & 8 acres, set in the Picardy region of France, just north of Reims. The waters are only 150 miles from Calais. An ideal choice if you are looking for a French holiday venue with specimen fish that is a reasonable driving distance from the ferry.

The lakes contain a really good head of specimen carp averaging over 20lb with fish to well over 50lb. The majority of the carp are mirrors but there are a number of big commons to over 45lb. Both lakes have similar stockings of fish.

The waters contain a head of large grass carp too that occasionally grace the unhooking mats and are an unusual addition to your catches. The lakes have been stocked on a regular basis since I acquired them in 1999. If you have never fished in France here is some advice.


131lb Catfish from Tortue

131lb Catfish




Carp aren't the only big fish in the venue, we also have some very large catfish.
These superb fighting machines run to over 100lb..... the largest in 2009 topped the 107lb mark..

These awesome predators must be the ultimate in freshwater big fish. Their power and speed has to be seen to be believed. Despite their huge power they can be tamed on carp gear as long as a good braided hooklinkmaterial is used. Wehave found the best catfish tactics consist baiting with halibut pellets.
