The Carp Fishing Lake at BrittanyOur 8 acre carp fishing lake inOur 8 acre carp fishing lake in Brittany was originally excavated for sand and gravel in the early 1960s to a thickness of 6 – 12 feet with varying shapes i.e. gravel bars and regions of sand and silt with no weed, also no Poisson Chat or Cray Fish. There are loads of overhanging foliage and trees which produce excellent perimeter fishing.

There are 14 swims (including 3 dual swims) with a maximum of 8 anglers (we can accommodate larger parties if needed). To make life easier you can drive and park your car near your swim in the carp lake


The Carp fishing lake was initially stocked as an all round fishery and we all know that included quite a couple of carp over 15 decades back. Since then we’ve introduced a additional 172 high quality Carp – mirrors to 53lbs and commons to 38lbs, this being our inventory from our past Carp fishing lake in Brittany. We have added a additional 100 carp into the lake. In February 2007 we included a additional 18 Carp: 1x Mirror Carp 50+pounds, 5x Mirror Carp 40-48lbs, 1x Common Carp 41lbs, 12 Mirror Carp 30+pounds.
