We propose a 22 hectares ( 54 Acres) fishery lake for carp angler in the north of France. 

Our Domain is 2 hour from Calais, in Picardy between Paris and Lille. There are a snack and a bar with WIFI. We can provide baits, little fishing equipment, meals option. There is a supermarket within 3,5km and a fishing shop within 20km. If you want to visit the area, the forest and the castle of Compiege or the castle of Pierrefond are nearby as well as Ourscamp abbey. The famous « Parc Asterix » is only 50km from the lake.


THE BIG LAKES (28 acres) : Is an elongated shape with depths down to 13ft, with bars, islands, silty areas and weed bed.  There are 8 swims around this lake, all doubles (but can be booked singly if required).  Each swim is constructed from sleepers and gravel and the owners recommend rod pods for ease of setting up, but bank sticks can be used.  there is also a picnic table in each swim.  Your car can be left behind your swim, so no need to completely empty it and fill your bivvy!  Each swim is marked with orange marker poles so there is NO confusion with other anglers

STOCK : This lake is well stocked with carp, but is by no means a runs water!  Most fish are in the thirty to forty pound bracket, with many now tipping over into the fifty plus range, lake record is low sixties.  There is also a mid 80lb Diamond Sturgeon which will certainly give you a protracted fight if hooked! 


THE MIDDLE LAKE (14 acres) : This lake has natural bays, islands, bars, weedy areas and silt patches giving it a moderate/hard rating, but the rewards are well worth catching!  

STOCK : Many fifites, with loads of back up 20’s, 30’s and 40’s with the lake record just over the 60lb mark.  All the swims are just as the big lake with picnic tables and marker posts, but only 6 in number (all doubles)  Also on this lake most of the fishing is at fairly close range so long range gear is simply not needed.


THE SMALL LAKE (10 Acres) : Similar features to the Big Lake, the island is the big hotpot on here. Shallower than the others at around 8ft, but does have a couple of deep holes to over 12ft.  

STOCK : Fish to upper fifty, again with lots of back up smaller fish this is moderate/easy rated.  Only four double swims on this lake, built just the same as the other lakes


FACILITIES : Onsite you will find a shed with toilets, hot showers (€ 2,5),fridge, freezer, microwave and electrical outlets.

ACCOMMODATION : We offer an Eco-Lodge overviewing the lake. It includes 1 double bed, 1 bunk bed, a Kitchenette ( gaz, fridge, table, 5 chairs) and electricity. Sheets and blankets are not included.
