« Three fishing rods on a pontoon,

a cabin on an island in the middle of the lake,

and alone in the world to enjoy the spectacle of nature,

This is what Spathula reserve to you!! »

The 4 acre main lake was established in the 1970s function as a fish farm. Changing hands into a new owner in 1985, the lake was left unfished for 25 years, enabling the development of a group of carp, tench, paddlefish, whitefish, pike, zander and perch (not bream or catfish). And in 2009, despite conclusive test fishing, the new domain owner conducted a series of carp restocking. A small island tucked away in one corner of the lake is home to a charming small shelter and magnificent double swim on a large wooden pontoon constructed by the current owner. The perfect spot for anglers!

On the Whole lake, there’s ample room for 4 anglers and their bivvies.he bottom, slightly muddy in places, with harder and rocky areas to others, can vary from 0.7m to 3.5m. You can fishing 2 others lakes, a trout lake and a predator lake (Pike – largemouth bass)

What makes Spathula special is the excitement of catching our namesake : the Spathula. Native to north america, it was introduced by the first owner during the creation of the lake in 1970. What is extraordinary is that these fish were able to adapt to their new environment and continue to grow throughout the years to reach 55 lbs !

What we can assure you is that the lake is full of fish in common carp, mirror, koi and sturgeon. The average catch is 17 lbs and the biggest catch reached 40 lb.




The cabin on the edge of the lake allows you to stay several days at the water’s edge and stay focussed on your activity. Equipped with the basic necessities, this gorgeous shelter has 2 beds and furniture to ensure you are comfortable throughout your stay. You can also enjoy a barbecue for grilling at dusk balmy in summer evenings…

At 200m of the lake there are a kitchen with gas stove, gas works, a small sink area, a lounge area with table.

Also on site, a few meters away,you will find toilet, sink and shower with hot water and electrical outlets for all your devices. Catering options are also available at the venue, provided under a fully covered terrace and overviews of the trout lake.
