carp fishing in france

Take a drive into the heart of Picardie, Northern France, and experience the delights of Le Domain des iles. The 60 acres of water on this private estate plays host to about 1,000 specimen carp upto 66lbs, with almost one hundred in the 40 to 60lb bracket. The complex, which is located within the most gorgeous settings, consists of three lakes which originally where all connected to each other by channels where the carp could move from lake to lake, however to enhance the quality of the fishing the channels have been blocked off so that we can offer differant styles of fishing.

the Main Lake
The main lake is limited to 12 anglers and offers the very realistic chance of some huge fish. There is one main Lodge at the North east end of the lake which when booked includes the 4 swims at that corner of the lake. There are also 2 cabins situated next to each other where it is possible to fish from the cabins. The lake record of 66 pounds is to be found in this lake along with a lot of the other big fish. As an added bonus 152 catfish where stocked into this lake in Jan 2000 ranging from 3 pounds to 30 pounds, and as expected these have piled on the weight pretty rapidly due to the amount of small fish in the lake and are now between 20 and 60 pounds. There are now 6 new benches situated around the main lake with power socket, lights and fridge. There are also lights and power situated in the swims. The lake bottom is clear firm peat and there is no weed to hinder you.

The Back Lake and lodge
We now have a brand new luxery lodge which offers superb facilities for maximum comfort whilst fishing, including satelite t.v, fridge freezer, cooking hob, microwave, large shower, toilet, 3 bedrooms, plates, cuttlery, cooking utensils. Why not book the lodge and back lake exclusivly and fish your own private estate lake. The back lake is about 7 acres and is limited to 6 anglers, as well as the originals this lake has been stocked with 400 carp to offer some easier fishing. the fish range from doubles to 40 pounds with the odd bigger fish which go upto a verified 52 pound common carp.

The Square LAKE
The square pool has two channels running up into the main lake, and the fish of the main lake can enter the pool easily. From 2010 onwards, we propose the square pool as a new swim for 2 anglers. Electricity and a picknick table are included.

stock pond carp

We have been purchasing stock fish for our clients for quite a few years now and we are offering this service now to everyone, the stock fish have allways been in excellent condition and have come through well in the waters where we have stocked.

The MAIN Lodge

domaine des Iles
There are toilets and hot showers available for your use. If you require a little more comfort during your stay, why not hire the main Lodge on the main lake or back lake or one of the cabins? The daily rental of the cabins includes power and each contains its own equipped kitchen with cooking facilities, fridgefreezer and microwaves. The Main Lodge comes with the same utilities but also includes toilet, shower and satalite TV. This exclusive estate (security fenced with access only by entryphone) is limited to only 12 anglers on the main lake, and 6 anglers on the back lake. Arrivals and departures are arranged on any Monday or Friday morning with staff on hand to give you all the help and advice you will need. In fact it is quite likely that Bernard Caron (the estate owner) will be on hand to give you personal attention. It is even possible to get the Eurostar and be picked up at the station which is less than 15 minutes away, take a cabin which means less luggage to bring.
