Location: Western Loire, Mayenne, Dept 53
Description: If you like to combine your carp fishing with trying for monster catfish then take a good look at the Windmill complex. There are two lakes, are around 4 acres, one full of specimen carp and the other offering some serious Cat fishing. You can book the whole complex to yourselves (maximum 7 anglers) and fish whichever lake you like… but we also accept individual bookings if you want to specify the lake you’d prefer to fish.
Lake: The lakes are extremely attractive, surrounded by a plantation of poplar trees giving a feeling of total seclusion. The Carp lake has an island and is made up of secluded bays around the perimeter. There are no designated pegs and you can bivvy up wherever you like. It has overhanging trees and reed lined margins with lily pads in several areas.
Stock: There are around 120 mirrors and commons to 43lb+, plus 22 grass carp to 41lb. The Cat Lake also has a long island with plenty of overhanging trees giving good cover. The cats go to 80lb+ and there’s also a good head of carp of all sizes up to 35lb… so don’t neglect this lake if you’re after the carp.
Facilities: If you hire the venue exclusively you also get the use of a lovely lakeside cabin sited just 15m from the Carp Lake. It offers first class accommodation consisting of 3 beds (one of which is a small double), a kitchen area with sink, gas hob, fridge, dining table and chairs. It has 12 volt battery powered lighting. Additional facilities include a high quality shower and toilet next to the main house and there’s a boat on site which can be hired.
