Location: Island Lake is over 30 years old and set in 35 acres of beautiful woodland, lying close to the River Seine. It’s a 3.5 hour drive from Calais and only 45 minutes from Paris and Euro Disney.
Description:It’s around 20 acres for a maximum of 10 anglers and it is possible to book the lake exclusively. The banks have been left as natural as possible but carefully cut into it are 14 swims, several being double, with a wooden cabin in each swim. There are also shower and toilet facilities on site. A track around the lake makes easy access for vehicles to every swim. The swim cabins do not have water or electricity, but are equipped with two single beds, a bedside cabinet and gas heater. Outside there’s a terrace area with a pub-style wooden bench and parasol.
Stock:The current owners, Tommy & George Young, purchased Island Lake in 2003. Before then it had been unfished for many years, allowing the original fish to grow to an incredible size – the first few sessions produced carp to just under 50lb. Recent additional stockings means it now has a stock of around 200 mirrors and commons, the vast majority being over 25lb... in fact the lake contains more 30’s than it does 20’s! There’s also a good head of 40’s and most weeks see several fish of this size on the bank.
Facilities:Wooden cabin in each swim. There are also shower and toilet facilities on site.
