Etang Meunier
Etang Meunier

 

Location:  Limousin, Haute Vienne

Website:  http://www.etangmeunier.com/

Description:  Etang Meunier is a wonderfully tranquil 6 acre lake set in the beautiful countryside of the Limousin region of France. Situated in mature woodland, this private stream-fed lake is secluded and yet close to many local amenities for anglers and non-fishing guests alike.

Lake:  At around 6 acres in size you don't need over the top heavy duty carp gear to fish Meunier and most standard good quality gear is fine. We recommend lines around 15lb as your main line. The bottom of the lake is generally light silt, free of weed, and most standard rig systems work well. Generally speaking, other than the obvious ones, there are no major snags in the water, but like any lake, after winter gales,  the odd small branch can fall in and get stuck in the bottom.

Stock:  As well as its beauty what makes Meunier really impressive is the incredible stock of mirror and common carp it holds. There are over forty carp weighing over 40lb, with a number of these being over 50lb and going to a top weight of 62lb 8oz. On many weeks the average size of fish caught is over 40lb! In addition Meunier also holds grass carp, tench, roach, pike and big head carp up to 80lb.

Facilities:  The main accommodation is on the first level, and comprises two bedrooms, and a general living area. What makes it rather special is that it opens out onto a veranda affording wonderful scenic views over the lake. Anglers have spent many an hour leaning on the balcony, spotting carp as they cruise in front of you.The house sleeps 4 people comfortably and consists of two bedrooms with 2 single beds in each (linen supplied). There is also a double sofa bed in the lounge to accommodate any extra guests.{rokcomments}

Alder
Alder Lake

 

Location: Limousin

Website: http://www.anglinglines.com/Alder/

Description: Alder Lake is a mature lake dating back to the 1960s. It is set in the centre of 150 acres of Limousin farmland and trees. Check out the aerial view on Google Maps, and you’ll see there are no roads, railways or pylons close by. All our visitors comment about the beautiful and peaceful countryside. The lake is 10 acres in size and can be booked by up to 5 anglers giving a massive 2 acres of space per person (at least). The lake is set in the centre of France, but thanks to the great motorway network it is only 5½ hours from Caen

Lake: This beautiful lake is set in a natural bowl and fringed by mature oaks, chestnuts and alders. It is fed by two streams on either flank of the isthmus giving two sets of features, one on each side. The overhanging trees on the isthmus provide plenty of snags and cover and are great fish holding areas. The rest of the lake is snag free. It has a stony bottom with silt channels following the old stream beds. The pegs are cut between the trees giving plenty of cover. Depths range from shallows to 15ft, and there are no weed problems.

Facilities: Because Alder is set in the middle of glorious unspoilt countryside it’s not possible to connect it up to mains electricity or water, so the facilities are basic and environmentally sensitive. The toilet system was purchased from Canada where the provision of hygiene services in the arctic wilderness is a problem long since solved! A low flush self cleaning toilet leads to a bio-digester which in the long term generates compost. The low flush volume is provided by a bucket of lake water and no fossil fuel is burnt to provide it!

In a separate cabin there is a gas cooker. Fresh water is fetched down from the owners farm house in containers. Lighting is currently provided by gas lamps (these will eventually be superseded by solar powered lights).

The main toilet, shower and freezer facilities are located at the owner’s farm which is about a 5 minute walk away.{rokcomments}

Millstone Pool

Millstone Pool

Location: Situated in the heart of the beautiful Limousin countryside, thirty minutes north of the Dordogne.

Website: http://www.mirrorpool.co.uk/millstone.htm

Description:  Is a seven acre lake dating back to pre-Napoleonic times. It is situated fifteen minutes from the city of Limoges and half an hour from the Dordogne.

Rob Green and Symon Osborne bought the lake in 1999 when the previous owners unexpectedly decided to put the property on the market. With a seven acre lake over three hundred years old which was stream fed together with a millhouse, barns and stock pond it was an opportunity too good to miss.

Some of you may know Rob as co-owner of Mirror Pool fisheries. Symon and his father Tony have lived and fished in France for the past eight years. The fishery is owned by Rob Green and, Simon and Tony Osborne. All administration and bookings for Tony Osborne are carried out on his behalf by Mirror Pool Fisheries.

The fishery, once purchased, was netted and all the existing carp removed. We had access to a stock of high quality carp from one source. These fish were a result of selective breeding between the French carp and fast growing strain of Romanian fish. These hump backed carp have shown exceptional growth rates in the rich environment of Millstone Pool.

Stock: The lake holds a stock of approximately 180 large carp with the average weight over 30lb and at least 20 carp over 40lb and five different 50s two of which are commons. Millstone Pool is the perfect choice if you want the chance of catching your first 40lb or 50lb carp while still catching carp averaging over 30lb.

Only five anglers per week, fish of this quality and a stunning three hundred year old lake.

Mayflower Pool
Mayflower Pool

Location: Situated in the heart of the beautiful Limousin countryside, thirty minutes north of the Dordogne.

Website: http://www.mirrorpool.co.uk/mayflower.htm

Description: Incredible peace and tranquillity overwhelm you upon entering the grounds of Mayflower Pool. Quickly that turns to anticipation, as you see and hear the big carp crashing out of the water around the lake. It is this combination of tranquillity, and the excitement of huge carp that makes Mayflower Pool so unique.

Mayflower Pool offers something for everyone, whether you are a seasoned carp angler, or someone on their first overseas trip. Combining superb fishing in beautiful surroundings, and or warm and friendly staff, we will provide you with memories to treasure forever.

Until 2003 Mayflower Pool was selfishly kept for our personal fishing. Now we are making this superb ten acre lake available to six lucky anglers per week. With nearly two acres of available water for each angler, there is freedom to enjoy your holiday to its maximum.

Mayflower Pool is set in beautiful, peaceful surroundings within the Corrèze region of France. Situated down a long no-through lane surrounded by woods and meadows, the lake is a haven of peace and tranquillity.

Lake and stock: At Mirror Pool Fisheries we have built our reputation on growing on big fish to become huge fish. To these ends, we drained the lake once purchased and all the existing carp and silver fish were removed. When that task was completed, we refilled the lake after liming and fertilising the lake bed. This was then left to stabilise before restocking.

We now only use one source for our lakes. Many years ago this fish farmer cross-bred high-backed Romanian carp with the local deep bellied fish, these carp, in the right environment, achieve phenomenal growth rates. We initially introduced over 200 of these young fast growing carp into Mayflower Pool. All carp were over 20lb with forty over 30lb, four over 40lb and one over 50lb. As we predicted, these fish have all grown on and we are seeing a spectacular number of big carp caught every week. A further stocking of over 100 large carp takes place over winter 2003/04.

Facilities: Onsite facilities include toilet and hot shower, kitchen area and fridge. Our English bailiff has lived in the village at the top of the lane for the past three years and is always on hand to help and advise you when requested. Mayflower has undergone our usual fishery management improvements. We are not content with buying fisheries, putting more stock in with the existing fish then opening it to the public.

We can't promise you that you will achieve these results; however we can guarantee that the stocks are there for you to catch. For all the above reasons, together with Mirror Pool Fisheries reputation built over the past six years for providing fishing holidays to the highest standard, you can be sure of a holiday to remember.Booking Through: Their website{rokcomments}

Meadow Lake
Meadow Lake

Location: Situated in the heart of the beautiful Limousin countryside, thirty minutes north of the Dordogne.

Website: http://www.mirrorpool.co.uk/meadow.htm

Description: It has achieved phenomenal growth rates, the carp averaging over 30lb with more than 20 40lb carp in the lake with two different 50s caught in 2004. We fully expect Meadow Lake to take on Mirror Pool as our premier water over the next couple of years.

We bought Meadow Lake in 2000 with the aim of making the lake a prolific venue where the angler would experience arm aching action from 20lb plus carp. This we have achieved with over 350 big carp stocked over the past twelve months, in addition to the existing stock present in the lake over the past twenty years.

To make the venue even more exciting we have stocked fifty-five catfish together with a number of 30lb plus grass carp.

We restrict the number of anglers to only six on this beautiful ten acre lake. This provides enormous scope to move swims or go stalking without feeling hemmed in by other anglers. Meadow Lake nestles in the folds of the surrounding hills providing unbelievable peace and tranquillity only overlooked by a solitary farmhouse.

The stock of carp introduced to the lake come from the same source as those introduced to our other venues. These large framed carp have shown exceptional growth rates and have put on up to 9lb of weight a year.

Facilities: You can expect a holiday to remember at Meadow Lake with arm aching action in beautiful surroundings with only a small number of like minded anglers fishing the water at the same time as you. This, together with the on site shower, toilet and kitchen, provides you with all the facilities you would expect from a first class venue.

Dreamwater
Dreamwater (Etang de La Chaume)

No Website , This lake has closed down (information only will be deleted)Description: Etang de La Chaume is a 11 3/4 acre secluded private lake set in the heart of rural France about 6 hrs drive from Calais. Situated in the north of the Haute-Vienne 1 hours drive north of Limoges and 1 hours drive south-west of Poitiers. This is a newly available venue which has not been fished for many years as the property was previously owned, since 1979,by a french hunter and used for duck shooting. The lake is over a 150 years old with an overgrown island in the middle which provides a nice feature to cast to.Access to the island is restricted,at the moment, as it's used by the resident wild ducks for breeding. The lake will be drained and the fish stock checked in the winter of 2004 but I introduced 10 carp up to 33lbs in November2002, which should have put on weight, and there is a good head of fish already in the lake. I have placed orders for more carp of 40lbs+ and 50lbs+ and I am waiting to hear from the supplierFish Stocked: Carp, Tench, Roach, Perch{rokcomments}

It boosts a stunningly beautiful 17 acre Lake that requires no permits, has legal night fishing, and the use of three rods.

The Posts have been positioned to access the Lakes natural features, and the lake bed is blessed with a hard clay base which is weed free, and perfect for bait presentation.
