Kingfisher Lake is a beautiful tree lined 7 acre lake, located in Massignac in the Charente department in southwestern France and set in 35 acres of private woodland.

The lake is available to book exclusively for up to a maximum of 5 anglers and includes a fully equipped chalet which sleeps 6 set just back from the lake bank. The venue can be hired by more than 6 people, typically a mixture of anglers and non anglers with some sleeping in the in the bivvies. Bookings are from Saturday to Saturday.

If you are a party of more than 8 anglers then both Kingfisher and Lac Lucie can be hired together. Please enquire for details.

The fish stock is quite incredible. There’s 150 carp with an average weight of 38lbs and the lake’s largest resident carp being 67lbs. There are also a few catfish to keep the nuisance fish at bay. With the largest cat being 150lbs you’ll certainly have a battle on your hands if you hook one.

The lakes were established by the current owners as a carp fishery in 1999 making it one of the first carp lakes in France offering fishing holidays for UK anglers. In fact, the fishery was endorsed by former British carp record holder and angling legend Chris Yates and inspired his book ‘Cross Channel Carping” in which he described the lakes as:

“…Well off the beaten track , well clear of the over–intensive carp circuit, these lovely pools each have the unique atmosphere, offering wonderful fishing, especially for the stalker and have the potential to make even your biggest landing net look small…”

Kingfisher Lake is perfect for a family holiday and as well as the lakeside chalet, there is an outdoor swimming pool and hot tub for use in the warmer months.

The lake is packed full of features and can be accessed all the way round making it ideal if you fancy some rod tip margin stalking under the overhanging trees and bushes. There’s also many underwater features including gravel bars and deep holes so a bit of work with the marker rod will pay dividends.

There are 7 swims which are spread around the lake ensuring each swim has sufficient water coverage. Two of the swims are doubles making this a very sociable venue and ideal for those for those of you that like to fish in pairs. Depths very from around 3 foot in the shallowest areas to around 10 feet at the deepest.
