Description

If you are looking for something a bit different for your Carp fishing holiday to France you have come to the right place. Stunning cliff lined Carp fishing lake in France with massive dark fish.

The Lake

Carp Quarry is a very old deep granite quarry which closed in 1938 and now fills from underground springs. This 3 acre lake truly is one of the most unusual stunning fishing venues in France. To the far side of the lake rising from the water are 100 ft granite cliffs which are home to many birds of prey. Clearly one of the outstanding fishing lakes in France.

The swims are along one side of the lake which have been excavated to make large comfortable swims where it is possible to cast over to the overhanging trees on the cliff face opposite but a baitboat is very handy in swims 3,4 & 5. The lake which is set in its own grounds has a large lockable gated entrance. You can park your car within the lake complex giving you total privacy.

No permits are required and fishing is permitted day and night. We recommend 4 persons fishing but can accommodate up to 5. The lake is very deep with mainly a rock and gravel bottom with a few silty areas.

We newly stocked in excess of a ton of fish supplied by a local fish farmer in the winter of 2008. The smallest of these fish being 23lb up to the mid 40’s with the average fish being nearly 30lb. These are the quick growing large framed royal strain, mainly mirrors, with a few common to compliment the existing fish stocks.

The lake was stocked with carp and trout by the previous owner in 1995 but was only fished for trout up until the year 2000, since then it has been left untouched. The lake dates back to 1938 when it stopped production as a quarry. It holds a good head of wild carp as well as the original mirrors and commons which we know very little about, but have heard stories about monster commons. We have seen one of them that looked in excess of 50lb, so the lake may produce one or two surprises.
