Map

Bills Lakes are situated in North Eastern France just south of Reims, approximately 200 miles from Calais.

Bill’s Lake 1 is a 14 acre lake lined with willows, birch and larch trees. The lake can accommodate up to 10 anglers and contains both huge carp and catfish. Carp go to over 68lbs and catfish to over 120lbs. The lake also holds grass carp to 58lbs and sturgeon to over 34lbs.

There are 9 swims around Bill’s Lake 1 which have been well thought out to ensure each swim has ample water coverage. Each swim can comfortably accommodate a bivvy and of the 9 swims, five swims are double swims which are large enough to fit two 2-main bivvies. These swims also have steps which lead down to the waters edge, an undercover picnic table as well as a weighing tripod and large unhooking mat.

Usually not all the swims are occupied for the week so there is the opportunity to move during the course of the week.

The average depth of Bills Lake 1 is 9 feet and the lake bed is a mixture of both gravel and silt. You’ll find that the lake bed is pretty uniform throughout, however a bit of careful plumbing around will reveal small drop offs and raised gravel bars which are tend to be the more productive areas. At one end of the is an island which the carp patrol and are regularly caught from. The lake is both weed and snag free.

There is a secure fence that runs the entire perimeter of the lake and bailiffs and staff are on hand at the lake or just a phone call away should you require assistance. Parking facilities are behind each swim.
