Carp Fishing Runs Waters in France

We’re always wary of describing some of our French carp fishing lakes as ‘runs waters’. After all, the way a lake produces on one single week is down to many variables – weather, time of year, pressure and so on. However, with that said, the following 6 lakes usually produce the goods again and again…

1. Alder

The 6 acre carp lake feels spacious and accommodates up to 5 anglers – you can book individually or the lake exclusively.  Fishing is from two sheltered banks where swims have been cut into the tree line and from the dam wall. Almost hidden from view by the mature oaks, chestnuts and of course, alders, the carp lake sits in a natural bowl. The fishing here can be prolific and best described as a runs water, with carp to over 58lb.

La Fonte is a very attractive lake dating back to the 17th Century and is hired out exclusively for groups of up to 5 anglers. An easy 1hr 40 drive from Caen and under 4 hours from Calais, if its runs action with hard fighting carp you are after, then this lake is definitely a candidate for your list.

This 5 acre lake is incredibly peaceful and a well known runs water.  You have one large swim which has good vehicle access. You’ll have complete use of the lake to yourselves but you share the facilities – kitchen, dining area, shower & toilets – with the other lake on the complex, Jonchery. There’s also a great optional food package available. This venue is ideal for 2 anglers but can fit 3 at a push.
