Authentic lake is a mature 17 acre drive and survive lake, located south east of Paris in the valley of the river Yonne, just over 3 hours from Calais with a very impressive head of big carp to 65lbs.

The lake can be fished by up to 12 anglers and can be booked per angler or on a lake exclusive basis. There are over 450 carp with over 40 carp well over the 40lbs bracket and 15 of these between 50 and 65lbs. If you get your tactics right big hits of fish on this lake are not uncommon.

Set in acres of beautiful countryside and surrounded by an abundance of wildlife,  Authentic lake really is a carp anglers paradise. The lake is lined with mature trees and packed full of features including bays and peninsulas (see aerial map photo). There are 9 swims which have equally spaced out around the lake to give each angler plenty of water to fish to. There is a track to drive around the lake and each swim has its own parking area.

Depths range from around 18 feet in the deepest parts to 6 feet in the shallower areas. If you use a prodding stick or marker rod you’ll find gravel areas among the silt. The lake has some weed, but it is not heavy and therefore does not inhibit the fishing in any of the swims.
