Lac des Demoiselles is a mature tree lined 2.5 acre lake with a good head of common and mirror carp to 40lbs set in the beautiful countryside of the Haute -Vienne region of France. The lake is a drive and survive lake and can be fished by a maximum of 4 anglers at any one time. There are good quality clean facilities on site to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

Bookings are Saturday to Saturday and is £185 per angler for non exclusive use ot £700 for exclusive hire of the lake.

Lac des Demoiselles was dug some 35 years ago and started off as a private trout fishery. However, 15 years later the lake was converted into a carp fishery and a stocking programme was established. The current owners purchased the lake in 2013 and opened it for the first time in 2018. During this time the lake has been drained down with 10,000 tons of silt removed as well as nuisance fish. The lake bed has been remodelled and the dam wall bank reinforced to prevent erosion. The original stock of carp have been supplemented with an additional 17 fish.

There are 8 swims which have been thoughtfully planned to ensure each angler has the opportunity to move around and has ample water coverage. Each swim is comfortable and large enough to accommodate a bivvy and a 3 rod set up. The lake is spring fed and the bottom is made up of clay and gravel.

The depths range from around 1 metre in the shallowest area to 4 meters at the dam end of the lake. The marginal shelf has oxygenating weed and water lilies which provide natural shelter for the carp. As with any lake, paying attention to detail and spending time with the marker rod exploring underneath the surface will pay dividends.

The water quality at Lac des Demoiselles is high which is testament to the stunning carp fishing environment that has been created. The carp are in immaculate condition and see consistent weight gains year on year.

The owners Mark and Yvonne are on site to greet you when you arrive and show you around. They will also be available to offer help and advice to make sure you have a really enjoyable stay.
