Rushes Lake


Location: Viré en Champagne, Sarthe in North West France


Rushes Lake


A 10 acre lake set in 17 acres of land. Bordered by a wood on one side the lake varies in depth from 3 ft - 10ft at the dam end. The lake is over 400 years old and benefits from natural swims... of which there are seven with large grassy banks ideal for 'bivvying'. The lake is mainly silt with a small number of gravel areas. The lake is virtually 'weed-free', and is a carpers paradise.

Iain & Kim, the English owners, live in the house on the dam wall and are 'on hand' 24/7 with advice, if you should so need. Kim provides a legendary food package, homecooked & in enormous portions which is served on the patio on the dam wall watching the sunset over the lake.... A truly awesome sight.

Stock:202 carp ranging from 18lbs - 46lbs were introduced in 2003, Royales, Dinks & the famous 'Margot' commons. Early 2005 a number of wels catfish were added & go in excess of 40lbs
