Carp fishing in France

For many of us carp fishing in France is an annual trip, so it’s important that you select a venue that suits your fishing capabilities and requirements.

There are hundreds of carp lakes in France available for bookings from UK based anglers, ranging from exclusive runs waters with lakeside accommodation to the more challenging drive and survice vast gravel pits. Dream Carp Holidays plans to list as many French carp fishing lakes as possible so that all of your carp fishing holiday research can be done in one place.

Venues listed on Dream Carp Holidays fit into one or more categories which are:

Exclusive Carp Fishing Lakes in France with Accommodation – These lakes can be hired on an exclusive basis for your fishing party and have lakeside accommodation. We list many carp lakes in France with accommodation and a swimming pool which are excellent venues for family fishing holidays. A number of these venues also offer all inclusive fishing where your tackle and bait is provided, which is ideal is you plan to fly.

Exclusive Drive and Survive Carp Lakes in France – These lakes can also be hired for the sole use by your fishing party but do not come with accommodation so you will be in the comfort of your bivvy for the duration of your trip. Most of these lakes do have on-site facilities such as showers and toilets.

Non Exclusive Drive and Survive Fishing Holiday in France – These lakes are usually booked on a per angler basis. For example, the venue is a 15 acre lake with a maximum of up to 10 anglers fishing who will book separately, as opposite to booking the entire lake. Therefore it’s likely you will be sharing the lake with other anglers. The majority of these lakes do not have accommodation so you will be fishing out of the bivvy.

To assist you with your search we provide you with as much information as possible, ranging from the best tactics and latest catch reports for the venue, to the distance from the nearest ferry port. Use our interactive map to easily see which carp fishing lakes are near to the ferry ports in Calais or Brittany.
