The lake again surpassed all expectations with the capture of 2 fish over 70lb being I think the highlight of the year. I think that nearly every week guys came back with at least one in there group having caught a new PB which was nice for them and also for me as it shows the fish are still growing strong and remain fit and healthy.
Its great to hear from guys saying they cant believe the quality and condition of the fish and I put this down to the anglers we have there and the respect they have for the fish for which I am very grateful also the water quality and the fact that I insist on barbless hooks
I have had very little time this year to keep the site updated and I apologise for that its something I hope to remedy in the coming 2019 season,I would ask that guys going get around to sending me some pics and if they want to a few words good or bad so if need be I can continue making improvements how ever slight to make your weeks fishing the best it can be
Thank you all those for returning time after time to the lake and for the bookings from guys new to the lake
All the best for the 2019 season hope you all catch monsters!
but leave me a few!
Its been along time since i updated the site, and its been a very tough 2 years for everyone something that nobody could of predicted
A few groups did manage to get out to the lake through the pandemic and reaped the rewards for the efforts they made to get there but for most of the 2 years the lake was pretty much unfished
A lot of work was done at the lake, it was drained last November and the fish were moved up to the top lake for 10 weeks then all the the Poisson chat were eliminated! and the remaining tree stumps and boulders which were causing snagging problems were removed
once the work was complete the fish were moved back down none the worse for their little vacation
In total 110 carp were moved
The fish are still fighting fit and the fishing so far this year has been the best its ever been
A new swim has been constructed up on the dam, and will be open for use as soon as the grass has had a chance to grow, The back of the swim slope has been timbered and back filled so now a bivy can easily be set up
A platform has also been installed, I think this will become the most popular swim on the lake in the coming seasons
The lake is looking the best it has looked mainly due to all the work that got done through the winter and because I now have a Father and Son team Thierry and Romain who have both worked very hard over the last year maintaining and improving the lake and the surrounding forest
I hope all you guys going this year have a great trip
