Map

Etang des Landes is a mature 5 acre lake with accommodation located in the Pays de la Loir valley of France which can be hired exclusively for up to 4 anglers. This beautiful lake is set in private grounds and surrounded by ancient woodland.

There are approximately 200 carp. Weights range from mid 30s to upper 40s with several fish now over the 50lb barrier. There are nice scaled mirror carp and some stunning commons that anglers have regularly said are very ‘English looking’.

The lake is spring fed and the lake bed is made up of clay and silt. The natural flow of water from the spring helps create optimum water quality as it is constantly renewed and has naturally high oxygen levels creating perfect conditions for fish growth. Depths range from around 3 feet in the shallowest areas to 12 feet at the deepest. Don’t forget to pack your marker rod as extra effort will be rewarded.

In the middle of the lake is stone walled island with a stunning red maple tree growing from the centre. At one end of the lake is a beautiful 18th century boathouse.

Etang des Landes was acquired by the current owners in 2013. Since acquiring the lake a sustained lake management programme has been applied to make the fishery what it is today. This has included draining the lake every few years to remove nuisance and unwanted fish and introducing a precise feeding programme which has resulted in constant weight gains. The fish weights are continuing to increase season on season with a good head of mid to upper 40lbs carp with some over 50lbs.

A mixture of both mirror and common carp.

Most fish are within the mid 30 to upper 40 bracket. There are several fish that now weigh in excess of 50lbs.

The lake owners have carefully managed the stocking density and view the lake as a happy medium somewhere between a runs water and a hard water. Stockings have been carried out in 2015 and 2017. Further stocking will be made over the coming years when necessary to ensure Etang des Landes continues to offer anglers superb carp fishing.

There are 7 swims which are well spread out around the lake ensuring each swim has ample water coverage. All swims have been designed to accommodate a bivvy and to ensure fish can easily be landed. Around the lake there are 3 parking spaces making it easier to get your fishing tackle to your chosen swim.

In addition to excusive use of the lake, there is lakeside lodge which has one twin bedroom. Facilities include:

  • Fridge freezer
  • Dishwasher
  • English tv and dvd player
  • Electric hob and small oven
  • Microwave
  • Secure parking

 

 

Boilies and Pellets

Etang des Landres have developed their own boilies specifically for use on the lake. They are made using very high quality ingredients and other than single hookbiats, all anglers must use Etang des Landes own boilies. This is purely for the continued growth of the carp who now see this as natural food.

Similarly, pellets must be purchased from Etang des Landres. Both boilies and pellets are sold at cost price.
