Lake Villeneuve De La Raho

Lake Villeneuve De La Raho

The Lake

Lake Villeneuve-De-La-Raho is a lake in the town of Villeneuve-de-la-Raho in Pyrénées-Orientales, France.

Our fishing here at Villeneuve de la Raho is very different to the normal carp holiday venues as the carp feed heavily day and night. Making this the ultimate experience with untold captures of carp and screaming alarms in a stunning location. Only 15 minutes from Perpignan airport this lake is used all year round for fantastic carp fishing. The water has a great reputation for being one of the best runs waters in Europe. The lake is 230 hectares in surface water, divided into three reservoirs, the Lakes of Raho are real paradises for carp anglers.

The Stock

Raho carp stock consists of thousands of common and mirror carp with an average weight of 30lb up to weights above 60lb if you are the lucky one.

This stock level is unbelievable and the burning reels action you will have during your holiday will make the need for a rest when you return home.

The Experience

This lake has been based around many years’ experience in the carp fishing holiday industry & the extensive search for a lake destination packed full of some of the hardest fighting carp you will ever experience.

Raho is a lake destination where you are going to catch fish day in day out while on your limited fishing holiday time. The end goal is to have a lake that you walk away from at the end of your carp fishing holiday with us and you are already booking for the next trip as the holiday has ticked all the right boxes

The Guides

Our local guides Samuel and Lloyd head up the guiding at Raho, they have fished the lake for many years knowing every inch like the back of their hands.

They'll set you up, advise on the best places to fish, explain the swims and features of the lake, visit you daily and be available as required to help in any way they can to ensure you have all you need to catch these many Raho carp that reside in this stunning lake.

A WhatsApp group chat will be set up for each visiting party to ensure that you can contact the guides easily and get any information you require.
