Spring Updates From The Lakes

Whilst it hasn’t been the start to the 2021 carp fishing season that we’d hoped, our lakes are ready and waiting for anglers to arrive as soon as it is possible to travel. In the mean time, some local anglers and owners have spent a bit of time on the bank. See the updates below…

Golden Oak – big uns on the munch!

Here’s owner Ian with an update from Golden Oak: ‘With a few weeks of milder weather, I managed to get rods out this week only in the late afternoons/evenings – It’s great to see the big uns on the munch and all in immaculate condition and putting weight on over winter!

It’s been a busy week with quite a few 30lbers also. Can’t wait til you can all get over to catch some of these and smash some pb’s.


Jonchery #8 – a new lake for just a couple of anglers to share

Jonchery #8 is the new lake from the Bacheliers who also own well respected French lakes such as Jonchery and Brie. It is a small lake ideal for up to 3 anglers to share, with just one (very) large swim – ideal for a social fishing holiday. Bailiff Mark spent a late afternoon fishing it recently with some great results.


Jonchery – big AND beautiful carp on the bank

Local French anglers Fred and Christophe fished swim 2 on Jonchery just before the French lockdown came into force. An incredible session where they landed 51 carp between them. The biggest weighed in at 64lb and the average size over the 51 fish was a excellent 48lb.

Well done gents on a very challenging week with changeable weather.


Vaumigny – the home of monster carp and sturgeon!

Some lucky French anglers have fished Vaumigny earlier this month, with plenty of 40lb+ carp on the bank and some stunning diamond backed sturgeon.


Alder & Notaires – keeping the fish fed

All quiet on what was meant to be the first day of the 2021 season. Just daffodils on the banks at the moment. Let’s hope it won’t be too much longer before things are back to normal. Photos below from a breakfast at Alder – we’re keeping the carp in tip-top condition for when they can get back to work!
